I’m back in California after a long vacation, and had to fill my gas tank. $4.05 a gallon. It was $3.65 in Arizona two days ago. I’ve never actually been angry before when I filled the tank. Maybe seeing it go up gradually had innoculated me. When Obama was elected, gas was around $1.75 a gallon on average (in the country, not in California). I think I’m going to start mentioning that to all my liberal friends, to remind them of just how rough these last four years have been. Apparently, high unemployment isn’t enough to change votes.
