Gas prices are outrageous these days. Thank goodness I do most of my work at home. It seems like yesterday you could buy gas for 25 cents per gallon. Apparently, back then the dollar was backed by real money, silver. Picture buying gas back then with a pile of silver. You know what, that same pile of silver buys the same amount of gas today. Silver holds it's value, while paper money does not. Prices go up because the value of green paper money has gone down. Interesting.
