I'm not as worried about the gas prices going up as much as the residual effects it will have about everything else going up. Since virtually every business is dependent on gasoline in some way, be it the trucks they use or their own personal transportation, the prices of everything will have to go up to justify this mess. It's kind of like when real estate prices started going way out of whack here in California. It's made the prices of food in restaurants go sky high as what you are now paying for is not only the food, but the rent. Now you will have to pay for the gas to get your food to the restaurant, so a burger will be soon $20. Sucks. I'm staying home.
