God Bless America!

That's what I thought this afternoon driving out of town on my way home from work today. Why, you ask? Gas only costs $2.36 per gallon today! That computes to just under 60 American cents per liter. It's been dropping every day now for weeks, and I am amazed that even under $2.50, it's still dropping. Gas prices haven't been this low in years, have they? I don't know, since I haven't really cared about gas prices for the last years due to the fact of a) not having a car and b) not wanting one anyway and c) living somewhere where it didn't matter, at least in my humble opinion. But now that I am a real American again and drive a total of at least 50 miles to work and back every single day, I am thrilled that the economy is doing terribly and I can buy cheap gas again!

In other news, the "Obama's going to win" buzz is still circulating, even in these parts. We'll see what happens next Tuesday. I can't wait to go vote!!
