That early winter break you've been getting at the gasoline pump? It's beginning to show signs of cracking.

Gasoline prices remain below $3 a gallon in at least 50% or more outlets in 14 states. But the national average has crept up three cents to $3.30 a gallon the past week and 8 cents since hitting a 2012 low of $3.22 in mid-December.

Who decided $3 a gallon is low? No, it is still high just lower than $4.

This is not some big news flash. The bad thing is that we could hold the price of gas down by using more Natural Gas. The bad thing about using Natural Gas is the conversions on existing care are about $3,500.00 too much for a a bi fuel. The the that make Natural Gas even worse is that obama will never support it due to his own agenda. They are even worse if you by a factory truck for Government Motors or Chrysler. If you are dumb enough to believe in coincidence then you will believe that they both came up with the same $11,000.00 option price for a new truck with factor bi fuel capability. If you are dumb enough to believe that then you might consider buying one. The rest of us with the sense the lord gave a soda cracker will wait until they quit smoking funny green stuff.

How are we supposed to exist on the min wage job that everyone told me was better than nothing? My coworkers are considering jail and shelters to be better than min wage jobs and 2 hr bus rides. Not a good solution!
