Gas Price In Your Area Update, 8/3/05

A week ago today I filled the tank. At that time mid grade gasoline cost $2.14 per gallon in Saint Joseph, Missouri (where I live). Today I had to fill the tank again. Today's price was $2.24 per gallon, pretty soon I get the feeling that I will be working to keep gas in the car to get back and forth from work. If you check the above link you can see what gas prices were in other areas a week ago. Please go to today's comment section and let us know what you are now paying for gasoline in your area.

I think I will start doing this every week just to keep track of gasoline prices across the country. Your help sure would be appreciated.

Southern Illinois: $2.34

This is crazy. I see no end in sight. My car cost $40 to fill up. As long as big oil runs the White House then this is only the beginning. Bush will not talk about gas prices, something he personally makes millions from, but has no qualms talking about God, something I believe he politicizes for his own gain.

I think it's a slap in the face that Bush and Co. act as if they have no control over the price of gasoline.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose. A
time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

On 2005/07/26, I got gas for $2.19 in Tampa. Then I went home the next day and got gas for $2.27. I was sad. Last night I got gas for $2.29. On the bright side, that's only $1.79 in 1995 dollars (but in 1995, I was getting gas for $1.16), $1.07 in 1981 dollars, or $0.85 in 1979 dollars. And there are no lines or gas rationing. Life is still good -- but I have a feeling that it's going to take a concerted, conscious effort on the part of We the People to keep it that way.

From time to time, I like to address energy issues on my own blog:

Gas had fallen from about $2.20 to $2.05 this week but last night it spiked back to $2.13... I love the whims of the oil industry. Oil barons are so crooked.

I haven't noticed the price around town yet, David. I'll be out today and I'll take a look. I do my best not to drive too much when I don't have to. The perils of being a college student with limited resources.
