Gas Prices...

Am I the only one that is pretty indifferent to rising gas prices? I mean, sure, it sucks to have to pay more for anything...but is the price really that high? Europeans are laughing at us...they were paying way more for their petrol in '97 than we're paying even now...

When you start to fret, think about this --in America we pay $1.99 for an 8 oz. bottle of WATER (that most likely came from a tap similar to the one in your kitchen). A gallon of gas (currently $2.88 for a gallon of regular in Philly) contains 128 ounces. That means that you will pay $.24 an ounce for water without blinking an eye, but moan and cry at $.02 an ounce for gas? It would cost you $32 for a gallon of Evian...

Why aren't we blaming the President and big business for water prices? That seems like a way bigger rip off to me... They don't need off shore rigs, drilling and refining for Evian...they only need a $30 faucet from Home Depot. Everyone's always talking alternative fuel, but thank God our cars don't run on bottled water or we'd really be screwed...
