4 DOLLA NO HOLLA

You know those time warp price comparison charts where you see what bread and milk and gas cost in 1963 or 1955 or 1924 and they just make you gasp with amazement? Here in Sweden, the gas price at my little gas station in town today (not one of the big chains) was SEK 13.66 per liter. There are approximately 4 liters to the gallon. It cost me 750 kronor to fill up my tank. At today's exchange rate that came to $126. Gas costs us approximately $9.16 per gallon. It's been this high, give or take a few pennies, for nearly a year.

Gasping with amazement is not what I'm doing.

Not sure if this is really a good idea but beginning to wonder what, if anything, will change things.
