Drop the other shoe

My brother sent this to me. Love it.

Gas was $1.87 by my house today. I haven't seen that since I was in high school (6 years ago). Where is all of the news coverage on this? We have 24-hour news coverage when the gas prices go up 20 cents, but when they drop over 2 dollars in four months we have nothing to say? I must be missing news broadcasts, or reading the wrong blogs or something.

I am excited, but sort of scared, too. I guess I am distrustful of such a splendid change, is something bad coming? Is it like when someone tries to soften bad news? "Well, we're headed into a depression, but here's some cheap gas! [pat on back]"

There's been lots of news on it, but mostly linked with "Even though gas prices have tumbled, consumers aren't spending more!" Like hey we just saved $50 at the pump, we should go spend it on something else that's going to depreciate!

I think we just aren't watching enough tv because I haven't seen anything on it either but I feel like driving to California screaming "woohoo" the whole way. I feel jealous of anyone who's taking a vacation right now because I'm sure when it's my turn to go gas will be at $5/gallon.
