What gas prices should be.

Ugh…just what I did not want to happen…gas prices are coming down across the country and people are starting to notice. “Did you see that gas is down to $2.89 a gallon? Finally, some relief!” Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is not relief you feel…that’s the continued rumbling of giant SUV’s sucking down one of our most precious resources that you feel. That’s the sound of people not being careful about how much they drive, what cars they buy or caring about what automobile pollution does to our environment. I have said it before and I will say it again; we need gasoline to go up in order for people to seriously contemplate how we use oil. I honestly hope gasoline goes up to $4 or $5 per gallon, as I think that is what it will take for people to really re-evaluate their transportation needs. There is no way that gasoline should be cheaper per gallon than milk; what sense does that make?

Sorry, had to get that off my chest.
