Gonna make it tougher on some, but I do hope the repeated jumps into $4/gal (or more) territory will start waking up America in a way that the 'green movement' never did... through the pocket book!

At work, we're back to paying top $ for our oil-derived products.
That's good, as it drives the labor costs down into oblivion against the overall costs.

Actually the economy was far from BOOMing. Much of our "sales" volume from that year that is supposedly how well we are doing was due to the sales of gasoline not of real goods.
