I predict that before the election, gas prices will dip drastically low.
Here in south east Denver, I have a gas station I go to where it's now close to $2.50 a gallon.
My prediction is that by next Tuesday, gas prices will get to $2.15 a gallon. Why? To fool people into voting for McCain. The thinking will be "hey, gas is back to what it was a year or two ago...things aren't so bad right? Right?"
Well they're still bad. And the completely arbitrary and staged fluctuations in gas prices are not indicative of how crappy things are.
So here's my other prediction: Once Obama is elected, gas prices will jump back up and will hit $3 a gallon by the next week or two. Why? Because the dip in prices is an illusion and once the need to artificially lower prices is over, they'll go back up to where they want them. And it makes Obama look bad.
It's all smoke and mirrors.
Eliminate our need for foreign oil? Great idea. But how about eliminate our need for oil all together?
It's very peculiar that Cadillac just came out with a Hybrid in the last month. The last month? Really? So, they didn't have the means to make one until gas his $4 a gallon? Amazing how that happens.
Push our dickhead politicians for alternative energy not just alternative oil sources. At least when I'm being lied to I like to have the illusion that someone is actually giving a shit.
So in closing, punish those responsible for the last eight years by voting Obama next Tuesday. And get ready to pay out the ass yet again at the pumps once he's elected.
Ass, grass or cash. No one rides for free.
