Get ready for $5 a gallon gas


Obama gets his wish:

CHICAGO (CBS) – At one time, $5 per gallon gas seemed like a farfetched idea, but that is no longer the case.

As CBS 2’s Roseanne Tellez reports, as of Monday, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in the Chicago area is $4.11, compared with $3.71 a month ago, and about $3.10 a gallon at this time a year ago.

Some experts say $5 per gallon gas is possible by Memorial Day-or sometime in summer. Others caution that reaching that mark is unlikely over the next six weeks. In Chicago, the prices keep rising to near-record levels–with no relief in sight.

Good thing we’re working hard on that oil independence thing.

Liberal (il)logic

Getting oil wells/refineries up and running will take years so we shouldn’t bother.
Even tho green energy will take years to be developed we need to start working on it now.

I have read in a worthy newspaper, that it will rise to 10 dollars a gallon.
