Although it already feels like summer, the summer season officially kicks off next Monday with Memorial Day. Families will start to hit the road for much overdue celebrations and vacations, yet they may experience sticker shock at the gas pump.
I was in Henderson, Sunday, when I drove past a neon gas price sign that nearly stopped me dead in my tracks. Good thing it didn't; there was a semi behind me. But it did cause me to turn in and fill up my tank, even though I was three-quarters of a tank full. The sign said $3.53 for regular unleaded...$3.53!
Okay, these are NOT the Geo Metros I remember. The Geo Metro I remember is the one I drove from early 1995-early 2000. The Metro was originally my Dad's, it was an '89 4-door sedan, which was a product of the second generation of the gas-efficient vehicles.
I don't know about you, but I'd grown rather content watching the gas prices fall below the $3.40 mark. Of course, after writing that sentence, I think, "Wow, how we lower our sights." But yeah, it's nice seeing more fuel go into my tank for less money...
