Dayum! Dayum! Dayum!
My Dad called me this morning to let me know 3 pumps.
Not one. Not two. But THREE pumps ran out of gas.
All right, are we the everyday people being too passive here, and accepting?
You would think the lives that was lost over this all, caused enough pain.
Now is a great time to go back to damn horse and buggy.
We can all grow grass.
Cause this is for the birds!

    Unbelievable how astronomical the prices for a gallon of gas goes today, right here, right now luv. I think you hit the words right on the head. Somethings.Got. To. Give! I just hope it's not the sound of us, taking leaps into the river for relief from the deluge! -lol

    The Petroleum companies suck. First they get (cheat out of) the crude oil/refined gas on the cheap. Then depending on how they feel they bump the price up. if it ain't iraq it's some obscure event somewhere that ain't got jack to do with anything. gotta love the corporates.

    Horse and Carriage time fe real.

    Unfortunatley....us many Americans just accept the inflation(including myself)cause'there will always be some excuse. Yeah they'll just end up lowering prices to the "first high". It's a shame and there are always excuses..oh we're in a deficit or we are still recovering...Bull shit! and all for greed.I'm ready to just fly to the moon girl.

  • At 31/8/05 9:16 PM, Blogger brooklyn babe said…

    @ SonyaRed.... a deficit... ha! Did you see where them phools stayed and this year pass G8 summit over in Scotland, how hyprocritically right of them, to stay as such a plush place to discuss poverty! What a hoot!

    Don't get me started on gas prices.....I'm still in denial that it will go back down when I wake up tomorrow. I let my car get to empty before filling up, hoping that by the time I run out, prices would have dropped......needless to say, no dice! Back in the day $20 could fill my tank, now I'm lucky if I get to the halfway mark. WHEN WILL IT END?????

  • At 31/8/05 9:33 PM, Blogger brooklyn babe said…

    @ CC
    I got U beat... $16 use to fill my tank, just this past Xmas. And now looks this Xmas, that's doubled!

    Gas Gas Gas...Whew...these guys...In the words of my Great Grandma, "I clare fo Gawd!"

    Now they say that the 40 to 60 cent increase between yesterday and today is due to Katrina. If they cared about the public as public servants then it seems that they would lower the gas prices in light of the poor economy and national emergencies that they would be considerate

    Today was the first day I ever wished I could trade in my gas-guzzling SUV for a freaking bike! This blows.

    Yup...I live over in Europe and we're paying about $7/gallon. This is the reason we drive a car that's smaller than a VW Beetle.

    I'd like to blogroll you. Wanna blogroll me? Let me know. ;)

    I definitely don't have all the answers, but I know that as long as people keep sharing ideas like this, the truth will eventually reveal itself and maybe it can make a difference somewhere.

    I think this blog rocks! Keep up the good work, I've bookmarked it and will definitely swing by again soon.

    Feel free to pay a visit to my Canada immigration site. It might not be your "cup of tea", but it covers Canada immigration related topics.

    Thats why I cant afford to drive. I just move my car form side to side so I dont get a ticket but It looks like I wont be driving it anytime soon.

    I'm back from my around town trek test-driving the Oh-Six horse and buggy model, a great replica of the one Pa, from Little House On The Prarie, flexed. I think we are going to get the F/X model. It runs on beans. . . .

    Gas in the ATL = $4.99 regular unleaded. I should be so glad I filled up Wenesday morning at 6 AM (after the gym) and had to get middle grade because regular was out and I only paid $2.65. This morning, I passed the same Race Trac and saw 1) the news van posted up with camera crew and 2) all the pumps were sporting grocery bags as the latest "out" fashion.

    Needless to say, I didn't go anywhere extra today.

    And, "Billie Jean" video? Stoppp!
