Random Commuter Observation

Gas in my neck of Northern Virginny is edging closer and closer to 3 bucks a gallon.

Last time we were in this territory, Carl Castle and his friends at NPR made a habit of mentioning both the price of a gallon of gas and the price of a barrel of oil just about every day. I've not heard word one on the subject this time around.

Now why do you suppose that is?

The radio this morning said gas prices have come DOWN 25 cents a gallon in the last two weeks. While those in Wisconsin went UP that amount over the last month ($2.99 high last Thurs - I filled Sunday at $2.89, so they are coming down a bit).

The radio news also said oil reserves are close to the best they can get. I'm confused. Is this just a huge plot to convince us to switch to electric vehicles or bicycles?

B/c they can't blame it on Bush this time. Too easy.

I've heard that the price of gas would be coming down. It has by about 5 cents and then right back up.

I've been wondering if with the oil spill one of two things will happen:

1. The price goes up because of having to pay for all that mess.

2. The price goes down as a public relations gimmick so we don't all throw out deep sea rigs.

Time to dig out alternative ideas.
