What are you talking about? US gas prices have gone up to $3/gal on
average nationally. When I was there 6 months ago, it was $2.65 or
so, depending on local taxes.
In 1982, it was probably <$1/gal. When I was in high school, I paid
$.25/gal about 12 years earlier.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
