As pleasant as a root canal

June 15, 2008

Yesterday, I paid the most I’ve ever paid for gasoline: $4.99 & 9/10ths. Yes, one-tenth of a penny short of $5 per gallon gas.

As ET would say, "Ouch!"  Crying

There is something we can do about this besides cry and whine, however: demand that Congress stop pandering to the environmental and alternative-fuel lobbies and start allowing the exploration and drilling of new wells and the building of new refineries in the US. As the slogan says, "Drill here. Drill now. Pay less."

It won’t have much of an immediate effect, but, in the 5-10 year range new drilling and refineries could have a tremendous impact.
