With all the gloom & doom in the media about high gas prices and the domino effect it's having on prices on everything.... from airline tickets to apples. My question for the day is:
Are gas prices really effecting you....?
The reason I ask, Yesterday I tried an experiment, Yes, it was a one woman experiment ... you sure can't call it official or anything...
I will share...
I set my cruise on 65 mph (5 miles over the speed limit) yesterday on my way home... I was tail gated, flipped off, honked at, given sneers, and passed like I was sitting still by every car on the road from a V8 Escalade, 18 wheelers, school buses, and I believe a Yugo...
If gas price are really so bothersome ,, How come I don't see any changes in my day to day life....? I'm as frustrated at these gas prices as everyone every time I fill up my gas tank!
I'm frustrated at our government for not doing something earlier, I'm frustrated at the car manufactures, I'm frustrated by the lack of mass transportation where I live.
The news stated last night "we" as a country are driving less...I would agree with that,
I know I am. As far as my experiment is concerned..
We sure are not driving any S L O W E R..
At least not here in Columbia, South Carolina.
