A Dose of Daily Frustration

Feb 16th

When I stopped for gas today I decided this is such a large part of my life I need to have it in my Project 365. Gas prices here are so high compared to the price barrels of oil. Why do we have to pay so much? I find it frustrating that the oil companies get away with "highway" robbery.

Our gas prices are starting to go back up...but they are still less than 1/2 what it was last summer...We pay about $1.90 per gallon right now...that's not too bad..

funny thing about our gases prices isn't it. NOT. yesterday I left the house and the gas was 2.19 got home and it was 2.25 filled up and guess what today its back to 2.19. I could just scream.

I completely agree! I don't understand why they are so high compared to the barrel price. I know if has something to do with futures, but I still don't get it. Great picture!
