gas 4.00, were broke, horns win

GAS 4.00
the price at the pump is rising more
could we see $4.00 a gallon gas soon
when does the price affect our driving habits

as it goes up we save more as we get 40 miles per gallon in
our cars
as we live 25 miles from town it does make you pause
when you need to make a trip
so groceries, home depot, feed store, movie, bookstore,etc
can all be done in one big trip
just like in the old days when everyone went to town
on saturdays
oh and add the local farmers markets to the list

who gets rich here on these gas prices???
not us
the oil companies
the oil producing countries
as long as we pay they will continue to make money off us
if everyone cuts back the price usually will fall
and it scares those companies and countries that are profiting
off us right now

our state comptroller says were broke
but if you think thats bad wait in two years when
it will be worse
most states like us have to balance their budgets
this is done by cutting the budget like we all have to do
or increase the income like we do when we work overtime or
get a second job or sell off things we own
the state only has one way to raise more money and that is
with that five letter dirty word-taxes
just do it and call it something else so no one will make a big deal
about it and get us out of this mess

whew they won last night
maybe momentum can be built up now for march madness
now for the big 12 tournament next week
this will be when im glad im retired
sorry no house husband stuff during the ball game days
cant wait for march madness
all games on tv without having to pay extra for them

  1. Sometimes I wish I lived closer to town or at least within bicycle riding distance to the store and school. I even checked with Cap Metro to see if I could ride the bus to my classes at ACC. I'm at 3 different campuses and the bus doesn't even go to the last one! Thanks Round Rock. It would take me over 2 hours to ride the bus when it takes me less than 40 min by car. I would miss my last class. bummer.
