Gas in the day
I was digging through the archives today and came across this old post from May, 2004. Check out this quote from a Prairie du Chien, WI waitress:
At the restaurant, waitress Kim Sepe said she believes Bush is trying to do a good job on the economy. "It's a lot to handle, and after all, he's only one guy," she said.
But she was skeptical about the president's claims that there are more jobs now and that his tax cuts have helped fuel an economic turnaround. She complained that whatever gains there have been have been swallowed up by rising prices, "especially now that gas is $1.95 a gallon."
$1.95?!?! Today, gas is $2.96 a gallon in Madison. Heck, earlier this fall it was over $3 a gallon! I don't know whether to be depressed that gas is so much more expensive now or relieved that I can still afford to drive a car big enough to negotiate the city's unplowed streets.
