I went to bed last night reg. gas was $2.65 per gallon, woke up this morning $3.10. One station had the balls to charge $3.15 first thing this morning, then later in the day it dropped to $2.95. How fast our own companies are trying to screw us! Has anybody noticed any of these foreign contries we always seem to be willing to help offer any assistance to us?

I filled up yesterday paying $2.73. Co-worker said he paid $2.79 this morning...just took a stroll down the way and gas is now at $2.99. Tomorrow it should be over 3.....or maybe tonight. Killer. Thinking I'll walking to work from now on. Just called my brother in San Diego, it's 3.19 there! Ouch!

Buy an antique Vespa (sp?) scooter. Can't bet the cool factor of one of those. Just pretend you're Gregory Peck in "Roman Holiday". If you can find a Audrey Hepburn to ride on the back and you're set.

Luckily President Bush has vowed to cut his FIVE WEEK VACATION short because of the disaster. =D>


He only had two more days though. #-o
