Commie Pinko Altruist Opportunist 

I fished out an old gas receipt from my wallet yesterday; Gas was $1.71 a gallon. I saved it for posterity; in a few years I can look at it with nostalgia.

One of life's small pleasures these days consists of filling your tank before there's a sharp spike in the price. I saw a $2.84 today and felt happy that I filled it at Citgo for $2.55 yesterday. Today, I find out via Fark that Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government.

Hugo Chavez has offered aid to the US in a shrewd political move. The reaction of the Americans probably would be: "Barrels? We don't need your stinkin' barrels!". Also came upon this from the thread. The source is obviously a bleeding-heart liberal website, but I would buy gas from the devil himself if it was cheaper to buy from him/her.

Freedom of choice is great.

I found a reciept in my jewelry box from a fill-up in June of 1998; gas was 89 cents a gallon. $15 to fill a Buick Skylark. Those were the days.
Yeah, I think prices will reach a higher plateau, now that the spike has come and gone.
