gas pains

Yesterday, I filled my tank for $1.97.9/gallon of regular unleaded. Today at the same station, the price was $2.21.9 for a gallon.

Here we are, two weeks before the most hotly contested election cycle in my memory, at a time in which for the last six weeks or so fuel prices have been puzzlingly low which certainly benefits the Republican party incumbents seeing as how the two most senior members of the party have tremendous ties to the oil cartels, and suddenly prices rise 10% overnight.

I can't help but wonder if that means that the oil companies have given up on the elections and have decided to start raking in the exorbitant profits they had denied themselves for a couple of months knowing that their free ride is almost over.

A guy can hope, right?
