Gas. Per gallon. Regular unleaded. At my friendly neighborhood gas station.
Well, at least it’s not $4/gallon…yet. Well, the premium gas already is but who buys that? (Seriously, who does?)
If most of this money wasn’t pure profit for the oil companies and crude oil suppliers, and instead was being used to fast-track energy and transportation alternatives, I might be OK with it in the long run. But as it is now, we have the worst of both worlds: Budget crushing prices at the pump and no one doing much to ease the demand for oil.
