In my travels around our city I take notice of the ever-changing gas prices on a weekly basis. It seems every Thursday the price goes up by 20 cents a gallon and then inches down by a few pennies during the rest of the work week.Today I saw we have once again reached the $4-a-gallon plateau, and it struck me that I no longer hear any outcry about the cost of fuel.

Could it be the public has fallen victim to the “It is what it is, and I can’t do anything about it” syndrome the oil companies have used to anesthetize the public? I remember the stink that was raised when we first hit the $3-a-gallon price, but now we have been lulled into the thought that gas under $3.30 is a bargain.

When the present administration took office the price of a gallon of gas was listed at an average of $1.78 a gallon.

Constant raising fuel costs, enormous increases in both health care and taxation have left me with questions about the future of our country that a simple man like myself does not have any answers for.
