It has never cost me so much to fill-up. Given my annual mileage and income, the $62 it cost me to fill up was not going to break my bank. But the guy filling up next to me was not so sanguine. To him, $4.oo gas was a major problem. “It’s costing me a week’s wages to fill up my car”. Perhaps he was exaggerating. But I bet he won’t vote Obama if he thinks President Obama is responsible.

Needless to say, the President, in his usual style, is doing all he can to reduce domestic production and increase foreign production. I think he calls it “spreading the wealth around”. He’s doing it on a global scale. 2012 can’t come soon enough. Drill, baby, drill is going to resonate with the likes of my gas station buddy.
