Did I go to bed and wake up in 1992?

No. Because if it were 1992, gas would be 47 cents cheaper.

But we're getting there.

that's hecka cheap! It's 1.81 here, we're just barely catching up to Utah when we were there two weeks ago...

oh and Kerry, help me think of a fun name for my blog...

Kerry said...

you're starting a blog, eh? good times! I'll have to think some...

No

In 1992 I was seventeen and I remember being irritated when gas got over a buck.

I do however remember in the summer of 2001 getting annoyed over $1.50.

Now I'm thrilled because it only cost me $25 to fill up my car. Six months ago it was $55 ish.

saw one for $1.47 today.

my dad works at an oil refinery and apparently, demand has been so low that they're shutting down for a month to um... get some repairs done... yeah.

eek.

Little-known trivia: the Standard brand name above the Chevron symbol is no mistake-- it's a hold over from the original Standard Oil, the huge oil monopoly that was broken up into Amoco, Conoco, Texaco, etc. (These were originally Standard Oil of Texas, for example). Thing is, ChevronTexaco needs to have one Standard station in each state just to keep the trademark active. And the one in Utah is by our house.

So now you know.
