Gas is almost back up to three dollars a gallon again down here. For no other reason than the gas companies can do it and we can't do anything against it. That is going to seriously curtail my travel plans to get away from the mosquitoes this summer.
A year and a half ago, after all the hurricanes, congress said there was going be an investigation into the gas prices, and they suddenly dropped down to just above $2 a gallon. That tells me that the price is artificially inflated.
One study found that it doesn't bother people who can afford it and make a six figure or higher annual income. But it does hurt the working people who only make $20-30 thousand annual. It takes a much bigger percentage out of our income.
So when I hear the radio talk show hosts say that it isn't as bad compared to 1980, I turn them off. It is hurting us now. It just shows how insensitive and out of touch the radio hosts are.
That is all I have to say on this matter.
