The Good Old Days!

Post by gedstrom » Tue Jul 01, 2008 8:06 am

I have kept track of all expenses for my car since the day I bought it back in July of 2001.

On December 21, 2001, I paid 95.9 cents/gallon for gas!

I broke the $2.00 barrier on March 11, 2003 at $2.039

I broke the $3.00 barrier on March 18, 2006 at $3.049

I never even saw $4.00 gas! When I left Glendale on my Colorado trip in May, gas was $3.80. When I got back home 10 days later, it was $4.20. It blasted right past the $4.00 barrier without even pausing.

It has now been at $4.599 for about three weeks, but I expect that to change anytime now.

My Dad used to say, "A pack of cigarettes and a gallon of gas have always been the same price. It might take one or the other a while to catch up but it will."
It must be time for a tobacco shortage or new tax or something.

That about right the price between the two have always been pretty close.
