that's $1.47 a liter, my friend



i got the email about not purchasing any gas today about 15 times. each time got my ire up even higher than the last. but not for the reason you think. first of all, i really don't think the oil companies will "choke on their reserves". they'd probably just be like, "hmph, sales were down by .03% today."

it's not like we're running cars on prune juice. we got no where else to go. we'll be back tomorrow.

the reason why this stinky, stupid, spammy email got me so mad was because this is what it takes for us to finally react: an extra $4 per tank of gas and unaffordable peaches. what about the years of perfectly unjustifiable wars and senseless deaths of innocent people? what about land mines that are designed to look like toys so that children pick them up and blow off their limbs? and what about people who can't complain about expensive fruit because they simply don't have anything to eat? we could sleep through those nights. shame on us.

and on top of these tiny horrors, we now have to pay more for our fancy-panted jeans and botanical facial creams? we are a lackadaisical, spoiled, and cushy society. we make me ill.

on september 1st, i'm filling my tank to the brim. it'll cost me $30.

Ummm...not to bring attention to the fact that you're a crackhead, but...it's actually $1.349 in the picture. I know, I know...the similarities between the numbers 1349 and 147 are staggering. I'm just sayin'.

Do with it what you will.

i know. the original title of the blog was "that's $1.37 a liter..." but then the price went up again, so i changed the title. i thought it would be more impactful.

i like when you rant like a madwoman. it flushes your cheeks and makes you look youthful and delirious.

in regards to gas prices: perhaps the feds need to step in and regulate distributors. granted, it would be complex a process but i can't see how else to ease up on cost...at least until we can fuel up on prune juice.
