Us, Americans, Are Never Satisfied
Gas prices are ALWAYS a big deal, mostly because how essential gas is in our everyday life. You need gas to heat your house, cook your meals, and most important..drive. Our economy is so materialistic that, for most, riding a bike is completely out of the question. Americans need the big, fancy, or fast cars to full fill their needs. Even the cheap sedan wont do. Last year when gas prices were sky high, people realized that big, fast or fancy cars aren't an accessory, fuel efficient was. In an article from CNN.com, it talks about how gas prices are rising once again. The title, "Cheap gas is history, again". Does anyone at all remember when gas was almost $4.50 a gallon, less than a year ago?! And here we are complaining $2.00 is too much. Well here's a heads up America, that TWO DOLLARS a gallon can come easily from your Starbucks Venti whatever. Go a week without brand name coffee and fill up your tank instead. Everyone talks about how bad the recession is and then goes and spends 5 bucks on a cup of coffee with a fancy name. What has our country come to?.. We only have ourselves to blame.
