I Have Never Paid $4.00 for a Gallon of Gas, But I May Have to Start Soon

Jupiterimages

I’m old enough to remember the complaints that were generated when gas prices were going to rise to ONE DOLLAR A GALLON back in the day. The horror!

Dad was gonna get us all bicycles and just park the cars. I loved how he used to say it, too. It was like he had taken on a “We’ll show them” attitude. Well, he wasn’t exactly wrong.

When gas shot up to $3.99 a gallon a few years ago, most Americans just really cut back on their driving. Next thing you know, the gas prices started to fall.

And I’ve always been told that high gas prices are proof of an economy that is, if not robust, at least improving. I can’t see that either is the case, now, as gas has shot up more than fifty cents over the last month or so. And at this rate it seems headed straight for $4.00 a gallon.

I’ve never paid that much for gas in my life.

The last time it got up to $3.99, it just so happened that I didn’t need to fill the tank during the period it was that high. But now, I’m not so sure I’ll be able to avoid it after seeing the headline “Recovery Killer? Gas Prices Barrel Toward $4 a Gallon.”

Yep, this could be it.

But, you know, when I think about it, I can hear my dad all over again. So, I guess I better get a bicycle and figure out where I’m going to “park my car.”
