The Fifth Horseman Of The Apocalypse

Wow! Talk about eschatology and the end of the world...Tuesday I was on my way home from the hospital and needed to stop for gas. I also knew I would be going out again, so as I breezed by the gas station I noticed $2.94/gallon. Since my last fill-up was at the GA\FL state line at $3.20/gallon, I thought, "Not bad." When I came out later and stopped at the same station it was $3.08/gallon. 14¢ in just a few hours. Today I drive by and it's $3.24/gallon. Another .16¢!!!!!!!

I think I'm having a vision!

I saw a beast rising up out of Egypt and Libya. The beast had seven heads and a crescent moon tattooed on his chest. And I heard a voice say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a yellow horse! Its rider was holding a barrel of oil in one hand and a scimitar in the other. Then I heard what sounded like a voice coming from a house of white, saying, “One gallon of gas for a day’s wages, and five quarts of oil for a day’s wages, and do not damage the marshy wetlands or drill in the Gulf of Mexico!”

********UPDATE  3/2/2011***********
$3.34 with in the last few hours, up another .11¢. Still, it's better here than in New York...

New York

Stupid Gaddaffi!  Doesn't he know this is very inconvenient for me! Bah. Humbug! You know that "mark of the beast" thing???? Well it's $6.66/gallon and it's coming!

And I looked and I saw another Beast. And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to purchase an SUV, and that no one may buy or sell gas except one who has an account at BP. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a gallon: and his number is $6.66. And I heard what sounded like a voice of rushing wind and the sound as it were of doors slamming at the house of white. And the voice of one, crying in the wilderness, and saying,

"Woe. Woe. Woe is me.
How will I get reelected with this economy?"
