I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised, but this (right, Silver Lake) is the sort of vigorous butt-humping that L.A. motorists are now suffering at the hands of the oil companies on an annual basis.
Every November, we swear to throw the bums out of Congress, and we usually wind up throwing them back in.
Every spring, we vow that we’re not gonna take it any more at the pump, and every spring we bend over and take it.
The vicious price creep has been going on now for six weeks and so far I’ve yet to find anything resembling a reasonable explanation, let alone intelligent reporting on the annual abuse.
Just a lot of impotent “Golly, gee, they seem to be rising earlier than usual this year!” …
Get on your bikes, people. Explore biodiesel and electric where it makes sense.
Write the bums you threw back in in November and make them answer for their utter failure to put any substantial support behind alternative power technology.
Or you can just bend over again next spring, too.
