I shoulda bought a Zodiac like Mitch.
But...
At least I can use the boat as a camper.

I saw this coming so I bought a ride with small blocks, but still.

One dollar per gallon in one year?

It's out of control to the point where it is gonna kill the economy.

It's pretty amazing. I have sat here for the last year with my mouth slowly dropping further and further to the floor. May have to lease the floor below us if it keeps up.

I was lulled into thinking it wouldn't get so bad so fast by the fact that gas prices were so stable for so long.

I guess that life changed pretty fast for our parents.

It seems like it is changing pretty fast for us now, too.
