Thanks to the reaction to yesterday's blog post, I have decided I must read Nancy Drew: The Crooked Banister. I put in a request for it at my library at home.
But I have no idea when I'm going to return home again. I used to go home every weekend, but I can't do that anymore, now that gas prices are RIDICULOUSLY HIGH. In my neighborhood, they have gone past $4 a gallon and are headed towards $5. It's weird, because prices will drop ten cents one day, and shoot up twenty cents another day.
I'll be driving as little as possible, until gas goes back down to an affordable price.
It kind of upsets me that there is nothing we can do about this. It seems like the oil companies pick and choose the gas prices whenever they want. And it seems like all attempts to move towards alternative fuel, going back to the 80's, have been universally stopped, because the oil companies have been buying off the government.
