de medicina praecepta

Remember back when President Bush and President Obama both, in totally independent speeches and settings, said that they wished they could wave a magic wand and make gas prices go under two dollars? Yeah, we all had a good laugh. Impossible! But I think those guys must have both brought their magical A-games to their meetings together last week, because yesterday this happened:


The sad thing is now when I'm sitting on my couch trying to think of something to do with myself, one of the first things that pops into my head is "ooohh, I could go get gas!" There is just something oh-so-satisfying about seeing that gallon meter hit 10 before the dollar meter hits 20.

hey, everyone loves a good recession!

Blimey! Petrol hasn't been that cheap here since the 70's. Or something like that.

It's ok. When I saw that gas was under two dollars for the first time in a long while, my first thought was "ooh, I should take a picture for my blog!" Now you've beat me to it.

Gas is so cheap you can't afford not to buy it now.

I have been at work for 7 hours and my car has been running the whole time.

I don't even bother turning off the engine these days.

And this morning I saw it for $1.55! :)
