It’s odd when $2.09 per gallon seems like a lot; but that’s the state we’re currently living in. I suppose I just got used to gas prices dipping below $2. It was nice.
All good things… (no, not the Star Trek: The Next Generation series finale.)
Hopefully, it’ll drop back down. As long as it remains in the low $2 to $2.25 range, however, I’ll survive. Spoiled is what it is. The days when I paid $1.70/$1.85 are still recent memory.
The dread of $2.50 is back. The fact that gas was once $3 seems incredible. I mean, what happened? Did we suddenly find more oil. Did we open new pipe lines? Did we spill less during shipping?
These are all questions without answers (or within a quick Google search).
The one thing I do know for certain, I really want the price of gas to dip back below $2. Wishful thinking? Maybe. But, I say dream impossible dreams (is that Mary Poppins…Maria Rainer [from Sound of Music]…Julie Andrews).
