None of that matters if you stay the eff home.

Why not copy and paste the same article every year?

I get so angry at the cost of things I personally elect to do.

Im stuck in Amsterdam right now, so I am afraid I will have to miss it.

Who can afford to do anything this weekend with inflated prices on everything?

This weekend I am honoring the fallen troops who fought for my freedom to drive as much as humanly possible

I do. Too expensive, and anywhere I'd want to go is too damn crowded.

What?!? Congress should form a committee to investigate this. At least until something else hits the news cycle and they can ignore it. Just like they've talked about every year for the past 50 years or so. Meanwhile, mysterious donations appear in their reelection campaigns from big oil. I see no correlation here. Move on, citizen.

This weekend we honor the fossil fuel industry and willingly purchase their product at wildly inflated prices.

Democrats in the House passed a bill preventing gas price gouging and the Senate is sitting on their thumbs.

They do.

You know, I've been hanging out on Reddit too much because I read that not as gridlock, but as something else entirely.

Which chapter in Drew's fark was this again?

Why are gas prices so high?
Because Americans will pay it.

Yup not going anywhere, just gonna sit around the house and do some cleaning. Next week I am going to go see the folk though so that will be a fun 144 mile drive.

The only gridlock I'll be experiencing is the line for the dump station at the campground on Monday at checkout time. Actually I won't because I bought a waste pump so I can dump into my septic tank at home, but in past years I definitely had to wait for 1-2 hours to dump. The gas prices certainly hurt, it'll be nearly $100 to fill the tank back up.

Because that's their midterm strategy, get folks so pissed off about the economy (their pocketbooks) that they'll flip to voting R. Sadly it will probably work.

Compared to most highly developed countries, America gets off pretty easy.

Seems sort of fair since most of it comes from America.
