Gas Misery Index

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in January 2021 the national average price per gallon of gasoline was $2.33. Compared to today’s national average price of $4.24, Americans are spending $1,003.00 more a year on gasoline today than when President Joe Biden first entered office. 

I am not paying extra for gas because I retired last june and my wife and I hardly go anywhere now.

But. If I was still working I would be paying lots extra. Or the company that I was working for would be that is.

When I was working, my job was to travel between customers and check things out. On most days I would fill my tank once, maybe every other day. But on my longest trips I would fill up twice per day. 

And with the price of gas at over five bucks per gallon that's gotta add up.

I wonder if the socalled 81 million voters have let this shit into their heads yet?


  1. I say send them a bill for the extra money we are paying and for their stupidity...
