I think you're on to them!!!


Did some research and posted some charts you might find interesting on historical gas prices, both unadjusted and adjusted for inflation. Bottom line, average gas prices on March 29, 2004 only 6 cents higher than on June 19, 2000, and that's without adjusting for inflation. BTW, adjusted for inflation, prices are lower now than in 1950.



Yes this gas price thing is stupid. How much do you really spend on gas every week? I used to drive 70 miles one way to work every day, and even at $2 a gallon it was cheaper to drive fast to get on the clock than to go slow and drive more efficiently. Similarly, it didn't pay to buy a more efficient car. The gas savings was paltry compared to the price of the car.

If you really needed a new car and you believed prices would stay high, then ok think about getting one with better mileage, but don't worry about it much.
