New Hampshire in the Morning

I am now a ‘regular’ guy

M – No, the headline is not a veiled reference to my body rhythms. It’s all about the gas. Gas PRICES. Even though my car whispers for mid-grade 89 octane, I have just switched to 87 regular grade. I doubt it will affect my ride’s performance. At 10 to 12 cents per gallon less, I’m going cheap. Not that $3.45/gallon is cheap. I don’t want to line the pockets of the oil weasels more than I have to…Get ready. New record-breaking profits occur for oil companies every time there is a price spike. Believe me, the big boys are praying for more mideast turmoil. Then they have their excuse for holding us up at the pump. To my car, I apologize. We’ll go back to the tastier petro when things calm down a bit.
