Here in Nashville the price of gasoline has started to creep up towards $2.00 a gallon. We have had a good run of gasoline prices below $2.00 a gallon and I am sure it will keep going on up, back where the big gasoline companies can make even more money off us poor working slobs. My small delivery company can make a profit if gasoline prices stay lower than $2.00 a gallon but I am not holding my breath for it to stay down that low. We need price breaks on food and gasoline to make this country work we can not keep paying these high prices with our wages dropping like they are.
March came in like a lion and it looks like it is going to go out like another lion. The next five days are calling for rain and wind, some storms will be here too it looks like. I am so ready for some sunshine but it looks like we will not get much sunshine until April at the earliest. It has been a long cold and wet winter and I am so very ready for sunshine and nice weather it is not funny. Come on summer I am very ready for you this year.
One of the things that I hate to admit is that I am wrong about anything, you can call it being hard headed or as I like to say I am firm in my beliefs. Either way it looks like that dam ground hog was right, it has been 6 weeks to the day that the little sewer rat saw his shadow and we had 6 more weeks of winter. I in no way thought that he was right and I thought we would have an early spring I guess thats why he makes the big bucks, and every one watches him and not me. I hope winter is over now and we can get along with the good stuff that we do in the spring time.
The price of gasoline has started to go back up this week and it looks like by the time that spring gets here we will have gasoline prices over $2 a gallon. Even though it is a far cry from the over $4 a gallon we had last fall every penny the price goes up costs me money in higher expenses for me and my drivers. Lets hope they get control over the rising gasoline prices and get the price down where it belongs.
The temperatures dropped, the wind picked up and the sleet turned to snow. Just when we thought Spring was on its way, we got a severe winter storm that swept through about half of the country. The snow came down all night and didn’t stop until noon. They say we will have more tonight. So I guess it is safe to say that “March has come in like a lion.”
