Ahhh.., Spring Is In The Air

At least around here.

The flowers are blooming, the trees are getting their leaves, and gas prices are shooting up again akin to the last couple summers.

Yes, we'll be seeing more of the same shit. $3-plus per gallon, the cute little .jpgs with "Arm, Leg, First-born" for the prices on the gas station sign, "It's all Bush's fault" scattered around blogs.

But yet, supply and demand - that's what drives it. People use more gas during the summer taking trips, and as long as oil companies can get that much per gallon of gas they're going to charge it.

It's already up to $2.81 in my little burg, how about you?

We're paying $1.31 a litre at present in Darwin, so you are still well off.

That works out to US$3.90 a gal.

Is it's any consolation, we are one of the priciest places in the U.S. to buy gas. A bit behind Hawaii and barely behind California.

$1.56 in east central Florida.

Jean,
That just ain't right.

$1.56 is serious crap...

Here I am paying $2.91 a gal for premium (92 Octane). The car doesn't like anything else, and that's why God came up with the "expense account."

Expense account? Lucky bastard.
