An Optimistic Look At Gas Prices

This insane jump in gas prices is of great concern to me, especially as I'm faced with quite a bit of long distance driving in the near future- never mind having to drive as part of my work.

So, it was a relief to me to read this item from a San Bernadino area newspaper on the record high gas prices. It quotes a spokesman for the Southern California Automobile Association as saying gas won't likely reach $4.00 a gallon.

He also goes on to say that, while the price may rise fifteen to twenty cents over the next two weeks, by Memorial Day the tide should turn and prices may even fall dramatically.

Good. Let's hope he's right. I'm just wondering whether they'll fall back to below three dollars a gallon? Of course, he's talking about Southern California, not Humboldt County, so probably not.

A good first step at easing the "pain at the pump™" would be to shitcan Nancy Pelosi (like that's likely), but fore more insight go to:

It's been $4 in beverly hills for awhile now. It's going to go up and a decrease will not come till towards the end of summer. If I can't afford gas I'll hitch a dozen or so homeless to the front of my car.

Great idea priestess. The county can export them to the red states. Shipping and handling costs may be prohibitive. I hear they use a grain product as fuel.

Very little gas is bought in Beverly Hills. The locals mostly get fueled up in Culver City or Santa Monica. Not much cheaper, but not yet at B.H. prices. Priestess' obsession with the urban outdoorsmen smacks suspiciously of the pl'zoid. Hummm.
