I know there’s been a 345,456,77.15 articles out there on this whole gas fiasco, but it wasn’t until last night’s fill up that it actually hit me…These gas prices are ridiculous!

May 27, 2008

Could it be that i’ve actually STUCK by them this year? I was thinking about this as i drifted off to sleep last night (pretty dorky, i know) and thought it would be cool to post them here and make sure all is still dandy. And after looking at them for a few seconds, it’s actually pretty damn funny cuz all of this was BEFORE […]
