Today I paid $2.29 a gallon for regular unleaded gasoline. I have seen in other parts of the country gas is under $2.00 a gallon and I hope it hits that mark here soon. I have paid enough for gasoline this summer for a lifetime.
I have never wanted a small fuel efficient vehicle but I think it may be time to reconsider that idea. I have been looking for a while and it seems the small vehicles would not do as well in our business and that is the only thing holding me back from getting a small car. If the price of gasoline goes back up it may be a necessity for us.
After watching the debate last night I am nos so sure that John McCain has changed anyones mind enough to make up the ground he is trailing in all of the polls. I think he made some good points but at some point I can not get past the fact that he looks like an old banty rooster and I do not think I can pull myself to voting for a banty rooster in any election. Let us hope that we choose the best man for President and not make a horrible mistake, that could plunge the country into a deeper depression.
The 2008 hockey season gets under way tomorrow night and I am very ready, it has been a long time since the Red Wings won Lord Stanley’s cup and I am more than ready to get the puck dropped and get this team into the playoffs. It will be a long season but I think that the Nashville Predators will be in the fight again this year and I can not wait for this great game to play out and see what happens this year.
So the wimps in the House went ahead and passed the bail out legislation as presented by the Senate earlier this week, and the most inept President in history signed it today.
Those overpaid greedy professional gamblers on Wall Street now have a whole lot more money to play with, thanks to us taxpayers. And after all this, the DOW Jones STILL dropped 157 points. Unbelievable.
