A ella le gusta la gasolina! Como le encanta la gasolina!

Driving home I passed by a gas station and saw gas was at $2.01. I passed this same station this morning and the price was at $1.85. In just over 12 hours gas price at this station went up 16 cents. Last time gas prices went up this fast it topped out at around $4.50 a gallon.

OPEC has been whining the past month over the low price of crude oil. They have been discussing lowering daily oil production to raise prices to more "acceptable" levels. That has me worried. Acceptable to OPEC usually mean 'bled dry' to drivers.

Unfortunately there's really nothing anybody can do. Not even the president of the United States, the single most powerful man in the world, has the power to force OPEC to increase oil production when they do not want to. We will have to just grin and bear it.

Or bend over and take it depending on who you're talking to. C@cksucking bloodsuckers.
