$2.499 Gasoline

I should point out that yesterday at the peak of the Labor Day driving binge, I was able to fill up my gas tank at $2.499/gallon. I don't know whether the evil oil monopoly conspiracy was asleep or what, but it was nice to see the numbers scroll upwards at a slightly slower rate.

What a difference a year makes. I recall seeing on the news signs for gasoline over $6/gallon. Hurricane Katrina had reduced New Orleans to a 3rd world status, with cannibalism in the Super Dome. And the world was going to run out of letters for hurricanes, too. Has there been any hurricanes this year?

That's because we impeached George Bush and stopped global warming, right?

I don't mind others feeding my paranoia as I really do feel that it mostly stems from that ridiculous episode of CSI that I happened to watch. It was just real enough to scare me. Funny how TV shows take a normal every day concept such as blogging and terrify viewers, yet we continue to watch. By the way, I liked the picture of your kids, out of date or not.

Gas prices in Texas are also lower, and living in a touristy area, that is saying a lot. I hear that they just struck oil in the Gulf that should greatly reduce our dependency on foreign oil. Perhaps this is the reason for the change of pace?

By the way, I was just reading through some of your other blogs, and I must say that I agree with you on a number of issues (mostly pertaining to religion and politics - the two topics we were taught to avoid in any conversation).
