Went shopping after work… bad idea… I was hungrier than normal… spent more than I should have on junk/treats…
Had a hankerin’ for donuts… the white powdered sugar kind that aren’t even remotely good for you… ended up buying a box of mini powdered donuts… I’ll be surprised if they last a day…
Gas prices on the corner haven’t changed in almost a week… must be a demand thing now that the local schools and colleges are back in session for the fall around here (Personally — I think it’s a bit early. When I was growing up… in the backwoods of rural NY — we didn’t start the school year until after Labor Day. (And we actually had a reason to use all of our “snow days”). The T
starts Jr. High tomorrow (But she lives in another state up north).)
I’m expecting it to go up in the next day or two… thanks to that hurricane that is currently demolishing the oil production/infrastructure in the Gulf coast/ Louisiana/Mississippi.
(Some OPEC minister says the increase in oil prices isn’t their fault — he blames global politics and refinery capacity problems. Says OPEC is pumping more than enough to meet demand. Says $70 would be outlandish if it were a oil supply issue.)
