Here in the US we are getting slammed with the highest prices for gasoline that we have ever seen. Worse yet, these prices affect absolutely everything. Food, water, clothing you name it, if it needs to travel to get to where you are… the price is going up.
We won’t talk about turning food into fuel… Whose idea was that? It sure sounded good but if you were a farmer would you grow food for people or fuel? The answer lies in how much money you will make from the crop. Are we going from Oil Barons to Corn Barons?
PS: I like popcorn. I guess the price of that will be going up as well.
Gone are the leisurely drives up the beach and back. Gone are the days of a spontaneous road trip with the rag top down your hair blowing in the wind. Gone are the old days….
I know the rest of the world has already experienced high prices for fuel.
Here the price of gas in my area on June 20, 2008 hovers at $4.09 a gallon for regular.
What is the price in your country?
