Survey: Gas prices up 2 cents to record high – Jul. 23, 2006

Good to know that adjusted for inflation, Sunday’s price remains 15 cents lower than what it was in March 1981.  As I was only 2 years old back then, and I needed to know that I had the highest gas prices ever to deal with at like a dollar something a gallon.  That fact alone makes me feel much better for paying over $3 a gallon now.

Now I just need to have some senator that is up for re-election telling me how if I used E85 in my car I would be not only helping farmers, but cutting Americas use of “foreign oil”, which as we all know, pollutes 3X as much as American oil, and puts American oil out of work.
