Oil is going up again

Oil is back up over $70 a barrel and has been steady climbing for the past 4 months. High gas prices might be on the way but, I don't think it will be going much past $3.00 this year. But I was was wrong with my gas price predictions in 2008.

Gas has been jumping up here, never less than a dime at a time.

2.67 now, man I hope it gets back to $4.

Even at 2 USD a gallon, it's still wasteful

Yeah I have been laughing at these news stories. They say it may hit $3 this year or next year. It has been $3 here for the 2 weeks. Even the local paper said the same thing as the news, perhaps they don't ever pass a gas station. I'm expecting $4 in Michigan. It went up a dollar in a month.

And they all wonder why I wanted a diesel engine... We'll see who's laughing when I'm charging people for rides.

oil

This summer,I'm going to roll up in a blanket and be placed in a basket on the steps of EXXON's headquarters over in Plano,Texas.Since they'll have all my income by then,I figure it's only fair that they take me on as a dependent.Shucks,the I.R.S. will probably give 'em a tax deduction for the extra expense.Chains,shackles,and a little gruel."Oh what I'd give to be spat upon!"
