It's a Gas, man!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread
Some US Gummint agency, or whatever, issued a report today about increased fuel prices and decreased availability 'round the world as starting to have a dramatic impact on our military operations, among other things. Seems to me that if TPTB have a choice of military ops or civilian SUVs gettin the gas...well, you see where I'm heading.
This year may yet see more bad news for motorists in the form of reduced availability and/or sharply higher prices. Hopefully whatever is causing this situation will be remedied before the next winter heating season. Wonder how many out there remember the gas lines and "No Gas Today" signs from the mid 70's? Probably about the same number as know that stock market bubbles can burst at any time.
Anyone remember the little jingle that went something like: "don't be fuelish?"

Anybody remember it being the patriotic thing to do to set your thermostat to 68 degrees (winter of 1973-74)? I also remember that gasoline first hit 50 cents a gallon in January, 1974.
