Can gas prices go to low for our own good?
This is the problem with gas prices. You'd think everyone would be happy with the steep drop in cost per gallon. I mean, seriously, all we've done is agonize over the price the past few years as it practically touched 5 bucks per gallon. We'd read all about the reasons for this steady rise and it was mostly political, both national and international. The cost was hurting our economy because so many people found it hard to buy gas as well as extra things so the extra stuff got put off.
Now that the price has dropped almost to the point where it's heading under 2 dollars, the handwringers are out again, this time telling us the lower price is bad for our economy and us. SMH. These are the same folks who have a different story every time gas prices fluctuate and I'm a bit weary of it. I say, rejoice and be glad in it and just tune out these economic experts.
Next thing you know we'll be hearing how the fact that California is finally getting rain is really bad for the farmers out there.
