got a few rants today...
first off, i love how gas can go from 65.9 to 79.1 over night. dont you just love how accurate the prices are, like the stock market eh.
second off. whats with minivans doing a fraction of the speed. one road im stuck behind one doing 55 in an 80, how fun. then later on another road, another guy is side by side to a bus (doing 65 in an 80) on a 2 lane road keeping everyone back. like wtf, use that gas pedal, thats what its there for!
i had a part three, but i forgot what it was. ill add it later...

few more things!
i thought 79.1 was the gas price peak, now its at 80.9 haha, motherfsckers!
also. on the way to work this morning again... lemme set this one up a bit first...
in the summer this one stop there is cops doing radar. today is a cold day, so of course no cops in sight. and in the same area is a 3 car smash up. even the tow truck is there. but the cop i saw 1 minute earlier on an intersecting road went to the gas station drive thru car wash!!! wtf! ive seen the cops in the petro car wash and stuff a lot lately. they used to have to wash their own cars at the police station garage (i know this from past experience) and now they are lazy fsckers that sit in their car, eating their donut, having petro charge the tax payers to wash the cop car. grrrrr.
more coming soon! ive got new goodies every day driving to work. i really need to bring my laptop more often so i can hook it back up the webcam in my car visor to record some good stuff. chow for now!

the reason you havent run into any of the "slow drivers" is b'c maybe you are on of them. hehe

The reason gas prices can increase effectively outside of the refinees control is due to the trading of commodity futures, or what people 'figure/guess' gas should be worth 10 minutes, 10 days or 10 weeks from now. Add to that the Petroleum cartel's capitalization on market circumstances, and you get what is in effect a lot of little increases resulting in market swings. I always have a hard time believing that the gas that has already been purchased and delivered to the gas station can increase and decrease in price within 45 minutes of some arab farting in the middle-east.

hiding in underpasses on highways:
summer = cops
winter = tow trucks
you'd figure cops would want to keep the "safety" up all year around, not just when its nice out for them.
also saw 2 more cops going through gas station car washes yesterday, rough job.
