August 1st Bloomington will start charging a FOUR more cents per gallon gas tax. Normal will probably pass it soon since the two towns have a non-compete agreement.
Meanwhile, gas prices are rising and rising and will soon be un-affordable – that whole mid-east war stuff. Our country isn’t allowed to drill or build new refineries, so get the bike ready! New bike lanes coming just in time.
Who knew government policies would create hardships for citizens? A better question: Did you seriously not already know that?
The recession continues, hopefully not leading to a depression. If Bush was still President, media would be camping by a gas pump. Maybe staff cutbacks are keeping them away this time.
