Are you mad yet?
I spent 9 dollars on 3.8 gallons of gasoline yesterday. Sounds like the punchline to a bad joke, doesn't it?
Perhaps it is, but don't start laughing yet. The summer driving season is yet to come, and I cringe at the thought of what this year's peak price at the pump may be. With the average national price per gallon hovering at around $2.15 right now, the American public may indeed be asked to break out their bonesaws yet.
Hang in there, folks. Methinks the worst is yet to come. It's times like these when I'm most thankful that my bikes get 45 miles per gallon.
