Need to Vent About Gas Prices!

Light comes on and the car dings, ugg…..There’s nothing I dislike more than having to stop for gas!  Usually,  I just roll in – close my eyes and fill it up.  Take my little slip and get on with my day.  Today my daughter and I went out.  Thankfully I didn’t need gas, but looked at the prices.  They went up like $.17 cents in the past few days where I live.  That’s insane!  Which is what inspired me to check the history of average gas prices. I got this information off of www.thepeoplehistory.com.  By the way, this site has some cool information.  ANYWAY!  Here’s what I came up with:

1986 – $.89

1996 – $1.22

2001 – $1.46

2006 – $3.13

2007 – $3.38

2008 – $3.39

2009 – $2.73

2010 – $2.73

I had forgotten we had these insane prices a few years back. 

Whew!  That felt better.  I’m still not happy, because I know next time I visit the gas station I don’t even want to think about it!

    I hope the stuff going on in the Middle East will hurry up and end so gas prices will regulate. Gas prices have almost tripled since I’ve been driving it’s insane.
