supply & demand gone amuck

You might remember when this accident happened...8 years ago this March. This Southwest Airlines flight from Vegas overshot the runway at Burbank. The plane smashed past the airport fence, careened across the street and ended up with a collapsed landing gear, right next to a gas station.But that's not the amazing part...look at the picture below!!!

8 years seem like century the way things have gone down the crapper.

Jaw dropping.
how quickly we forget.
of course now everyone can say "back in my day, we paid a buck fifty for gas and life was good."

And to think people bitched back then. I can still remember the days when I was growing up: $0.89/gal.

Sigh.

I wouldn't mind paying $50/ gallon if the average person made $2million a year :) wow what would that mean that inflation had done to us?

Rev: I think people will always find something to bitch about.
