Houston, we have a problem…

Just under two months ago, I made a post about the cost of my fill up at the gas station. I was taken aback that prices had shot up to $4.99/gallon.

Ah, the good old days…

Palo Alto, CA. March 10, 2020

Now, to be fair, I took this picture close to work, which is a pricey zip code, but it’s not that far from home. This jolt to the wallet is coming in hot!

I do believe this is when the pilot puts on the Fasten Seatbelt signs. Buckle up folks. I suspect we’re going to experience a lot of turbulence ahead.

Sadly, we’re already mid-flight with this buffoon at the controls…

So, a few quick tips from the Boring Old Man:

1. Check your tire pressure. Proper pressure = better mileage.

2. Plan your trips. Better one long run with a few stops than a bunch of short ones.

3. Accelerate slowly and smoothly.

Better yet, ride a bike or walk when you can!

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Buy food. These price increases will not be eaten by the distributors and grocery stores, it will be added to the cost YOU pay at the checkout. It’s only a matter of time before the ugliness of fuel costs trickle down to the grocery aisle. You’ve been warned.
