Gas prices in 1970 and when I got my first car in May 1984 I paid 90 cents a gallon. On May 9th of 2002 is was 1.29 per gallon in Wichita, KS. Later that same afternoon in Los Angeles, CA it was 1.49. George W. Bush was president. It seems funny that the prices nearly tripled under his presidency and we entered into two wars and people have issues with the current president. They were okay with a psycho but have issues with a black man? Really?! How blind are those who claim that all will be good as long as we give to the rich raise your hand...chirp, chirp.
