I was out of the country – heck, I was in the Southern Hemisphere – for most of the month of May.
When I left on that trip, our local gas stations were charging something like $2.80 per gallon for gas. A week or so later prices started shooting up up up all over the US. We heard about it in New Zealand in the newspapers and on TV.
However, it was one thing to hear that news when far from home.
It was another to gas up the car day before yesterday for the first time since late April – at the price of $3.38 a gallon at Costco.
Thank goodness the Roo isn’t a gas hog.
