dear ms b-i got gas


now ms b
dont worry its not the bad stuff

i got gas this weekend for $1.44
heck yesterday i drove by a station where it said
now i put that location into my brains gps
hoping to stop there when i need to fill up my tank later this week

when i put that gas thingy into my tank
push that handle to fill up my tank
i sort of well like it
i get this sort of uneasy feeling deep down in my stomach
this really may not be a good thing for all of us
after all

now here in texas
oil is king
it pays for a lot of things like
education roads schools universities etc

i saw a picture yesterday online
of all these oil wells in texas
now it was a video
there were none of those head things
going up and down up and down
apparently they are all shut down for now
its to expensive to pump these wells at these cheap prices

heck the last time the prices were this low
was a long time ago
your mom and dad may have been kiddos when it was
this low

low is good
it may be bad though

lots of people are getting laid off around here
it trickles down to stores gas stations restaurants
even walmart

ok i know they dont have a walmart where you live
youll just have to google it
maybe we will bring you to one of ours next time
you visit
Image result for free photo of cheap gas
so i personally
as i put that cheap gas in my car
wouldnt mind if the price would go back up a little
i think there is a sweet spot
where we can afford that price
they the oil people can make enough money
to make those thingy ma jingy things go back up
and down again
you know the ones that look like a grasshopper
that means people can go back to work
businesses dont get hurt

one thing i do hope happens though
is that they add a gasoline tax that is higher
while the gas prices are lower
to pay for our roads and infrastructure that is all
falling apart

im sorry but death and taxes are inevitable

you have to have taxes to make the government work
not like
kansas and louisiana who seem to be following apart
to me it seems simple
you need new revenue coming in
at the same time you tighten the belt some on the spending
they need to dave ramsey those governments

now would be a good time to tax gasoline
when no one will notice

so in summary
ms b
i got gas
i would feel better if i had to pay more
