Time to Bring Out the Classics
We are in the slow season – the weeks before the busy holiday season kicks in. The weather is great, people are at home, so it’s time to take advantage of those wonderful, winding back roads that are so much fun to drive.
Here in California we are dealing with gasoline price manipulation – yet again. We still hear the baloney about the winter blend at the refinery, but back in 2008 when
the price at the pump was under $2, they never mentioned the winter blend. Hmmm. See here.
Now the price is 2 1/2 times what it was 4 years ago. So, where are our representatives who are supposed to represent our best interests? Oh yeah, stuffing their pockets with graft from the lobbyists. See here.
Anyway, before the road trip becomes too pricey and we have to dodge self-driving cars, it’s time to take to the back roads, turn up the music, open the sun roof and drive!
