Summertime Gas Prices upon us

swbtherantfilesThe sun is out, the flowers are in full bloom, the sap is starting to fall on your car from the trees ….. and we are all waiting for that one last sign that signifies the start of summer – skyrocketing gas prices.

It has showed already, even faster than expected, but … in articles like the one seen in USA Today (Click Here to read) by Julie Schmit, it is being reported that prices will level off because consumer confidence may not be as high as expected and global economic recovery is not happening as quickly as expected.


There are three things the summer is known for:

  • Outdoor cookouts of burgers and hot dogs
  • Outdoor drinking of beer and margaritas
  • Complaining about gasoline prices

If you take away complaining about gasoline prices in the summer, the only thing your are going to have by process of elimination is a bunch of fat drunks. How do you thinks this will help the economy ?!?!?!

Think about it – if we become a bunch of overweight carnivorous eating slobs that can’t fit out the front door – who’s going to buy gasoline? … our pets??? How dare the oil companies stop raising gasoline prices in the summer … it’s our God-given right to be gouged when the sun comes out!


PS – For the clueless … we were being sarcastic in this post. If you still don’t get it, have a friend explain.

    After 41 straight days of gas prices going up, I can only imagine what the official start of summer will bring to them. Maybe we can all let the powers that be know how we’re feeling by visiting this website and signing the letter!
