$105 oil (now $119 oil)

So today was the third record breaking day for crude this week. $105.97 a barrel! It will probably reek havoc on the summer gas prices if it stays this high or higher. So, I guess it is time to kick it up a notch on my driving technique.

I just took my first bicycle ride of the season today. I'm not ready for the record setting as prices but I will be soon.

makes me glad I got my Big Dummy built already

Heck, the wife's even thinking of getting a bus pass for her trips to work, it doesn't get better than that.

Shoot, $63/bbl equivalent (dollar index was at 125 then versus 75 now) in 2005 and it wouldn't look nearly so bad. I guess that's what we get here in the states when the gubberment runs the printing presses at full speed.

*shrugs*

I was talking to someone at w*rk whose husband spends $550/mo driving his SUV to BR (70+ mi one way) every day. She was complaining that they couldn't afford to have a child. Meanwhile it takes me 2-3 weeks to burn 10 gals.

Another cow orker is looking at a Yaris, Fit, or Matrix for non-MC days.

Crude hit $106.54 during trading today (a new record high). But it closed at the low price of $105.
