Want to know what the story around the water cooler's going to be today? It should be pretty obvious to anyone who doesn't live in either New York City or a cave. Those are the only two places you can escape the obvious skyrocketing price of gas over the past few weeks. Prices have gone from high to levels reaching the heights of the ozone layer, now averaging $3.07 a gallon. And what do we expect, there's been no increase in global refinement capacity in a decade, and despite the recent five-day drop in oil prices it's not like the long-term cost for oil's going anywhere but up. So what's going to solve the problem? Our best guess is that we've got to cut the crap surrounding the issue and do what needs to be done — get the commuters off of the road pronto, and leave the real driving — and the real cheap gas — to the enthusiasts and those of us who love to drive.
