You put the pussy on a pedestal

Went to see that 40 year old virgin movie last night and holy shit I have not laughed that hard watching a movie in a very long time. Especially with that ending. Oh man, everyone in the theatre was almost crying because it was so weird and hilarious at the same time.

Anyway, am I glad I filled up last night when I found a Sunoco that cost $2.74 per gallon in Princeton. Went out this morning and some places are already above $3.50?!? Also, it appears as if our lovely asshole in charge Gov. Codey approved for all gas stations to raise the prices between 25 and 50 cents for tomorrow, so this means we’re most likely seeing either very close to or above 4 bucks a gallon here in good ol’ Joisey during the Labor Day weekend. I mean I know we’ve now become the richest state in the nation, but this is getting way out of hand. Though according to , gas prices in South Carolina are expected to go near or above 5 bucks?! Jeez.

What I am actually more worried about is the price of everything else going up because the price of diesel around these parts is $2.75 and going up pretty quick. So this means, the goods we receive on a regular basis (food, clothing, etc) will be more expensive because it will cost more to ship them. Those delivering gas may not be able to afford shipping the gas in trucks as well, so we may also see shortages in gas in some places too. You know what, this really sucks to say, but this is going to end in a very horrific way. I have a funny feeling there’s going to be violence at gas stations and people are going to lose their lives over this.

Oh I hope that doesn’t happen but I would not be surprised! I just hope people are smart enough to realize that it’s not the individual gas retailer that is responsible! I’ve worked for some and seen their books (they owned a few businesses that I worked for) and they make next to nothing off the gas especially if it’s full serve. It’s just a way to draw people into the other businesses they had going there (marina, general store, 4 wheelers, boats in summer and snowmobiles in the winter). At least that’s what I’ve seen in my experience.

I agree with you, I know a few people that run gas stations and they really do not make as much as others think. The oil companies are just steadily raising prices to see what the breaking point for the population is until they cut back on consuming their product. However, with all of the nations so dependant on their product, they can only sit back, laugh and reap the rewards as they continue to jack up prices. They really have no need to raise the prices regardless of what is going on in the world.

There were reports on the news that Police had to be called in at one gas station because of altercations. You’re right…people are going to start acting stupid real soon.

we should all get scooters.

my mom just bought a durango. a freakin durango! and she is a real estate agent so she drives everywhere. so dumb.

Apparently I was wrong about the conversion. I assumed a gallon was a gallon but I when I calculated it I was using Imperial Gallons not US gallons. My bad!

So we’re actually paying closer to $4.73 CDN per US gallon. It still sucks no matter how you slice it.

Have a good night!

Down here around Atlanta some gas stations were charging over $5.00 the other day.

I loved The 40 Year Old Virgin! I didn’t expect it to be as funny as it was. 🙂
