Ok - so everyone has been moaning and groaning about the bloody price of gas and I’m here on my soap box to get something off my chest ‘YOU’RE ALL BLOODY SPOILT’!
Listen I know jack shit about how petrol gets to the pump, but this is my guess. First you have to find the bloody stuff under the crust of the earth and that can’t be easy. Then they drill a big damn hole in the ground or the sea and some how suck all that good juice out of our mother, which (lets face it) must be there for a purpose other than making my truck run. Then it’s transported somehow to somewhere probably through the Suez Canal in some big bastarding ship as we all cross our fingers it doesn’t run a ground in the most pristine of shorelines. Ship to shore….. more pumping and lets not forget the whole oil refining bit that makes it into our precious elixir petrol. Then, more dangerous moving of flammable liquids on autobahns & motorways with whole families in mini vans zooming by, to end up delivered to your local gas station.
And all this for $4.21 a gallon………boys and girls you should all be on your knees in thanks for the bloody deal of the century. I’m not pro oil - I’m just saying lets all have a little perspective.
I suspect I’m not alone when standing in line thinking ‘ooh that’s a bit
pricey’ when ordering my grande- two pump -vanilla -half decaf -half regular -no foam -cup of draino that I still willingly pony up $4.25 for. Now THAT’S something worth bitching about!
