Let's Go Brandon! No, Seriously. Fuck Joe Biden.

The wife and I went with Almost Doctor Daughter to see my sister and Retired Doctor Dad in Toledo. We took the daughter's little car because it is a bit more fuel efficient than anything we own. She was low on gas so of course I stopped to fill it up across the border in Ohio. This was the price at the pump...


That is the highest price I can remember paying for a very, very long time. You have to go back to the Obama days to recall gas being over $4/gallon. 

As we drove along U.S. 24 in northwest Ohio, prices were all over the place. Most places had gas lower, like $3.75-$3.89 but at some truck stops in Napoleon, Ohio we saw diesel credit card prices over $5/gallon. If you are a trucker, it is about to get a lot harder to make ends meet.

It all feels like it could really snowball at any moment.

  1. I think avalanche in lieu of snowball would be more likely.
    Need a car that runs on vodka. Probably pick up a good deal on the banned stuff.

    1. Could be one of those slow and then suddenly not slow things.

  2. Everything will go up with the price of gas. Next Dems want a $15-dollar minimum wage, more shit will go up in price when they pass that one. The destruction of the world is underway, being led by the so called smartest people our education system produces.

    1. They stopped talking about the $15 minimum wage, hell Target is offering new hires $24/hr in some places.

  3. Lots of empty shelves in grocery stores closer to the city compared to where i live rural.

    I was away for work last week. Premium gas was 1.97 per liter. So $7.88 a gallon. We make the oil and wehave refineries. The price went stupid fast.

    1. Shelves are OK here but that won't last with diesel prices spiking, everything is going to come to a shrieking halt.

  4. And it will spiral. And it won't be just gas, but that'll be my Wednesday post.
