More Thoughts for the Day: Supply and Demand

"US Gasoline Prices Reach Record Highs" (yahoo news)

gee, i wonder why...

could it be, the basic economic principle of supply and demand.

all you people driving around in your trendy, gas guzzling suv's. what do those things get, 2 miles to the gallon?

it's because you're consuming all that gas, that the prices are rising. you're creating a demand that is greater than the supply. duh.

but you really didn't have any choice. it's what all those commercials on tv told you to drive. where else are you supposed to get your opinions from?
