How Sad Is It When Your Kids Can Say I Remember When

Every time my kids go with to get gas, they always say I remember when gas was less than a dollar a gallon. This always makes me laugh because they are only 13 and 11 and it wasn't all that many years ago either. Now gas prices are on a fast rise again. It's enough to drive you insane.

I remember when I was a kid and it was only about 50 cent a gallon. It is 2.29 here. What is it there?

That is funny! Gas prices are not! Did you know that oil companies are showing RECORD profits right now and have been. When I say record profits, I don't just mean for oil companies, I mean for any kind of company. That is sad. I'm thinking of buying a hybrid. What is even more sad is there is nothing we can do about it. We need it.

No gas prices are not and both my vehicles have a 20 gallon tank and bigger. I wouldn't mind a hybrid but the up keep expenses on them are exspensive. My dad has one. I just don't go anywhere unless I have to. If people stuck to doing that eventually the oil companies would feel it. I am not talking about people who have to drive back and forth to work. But people who have nothing better to do but to drive around all day.

Ha ha ha - I know exactly what you mean Marie - my 5 year old is always saying I remember a lot of years ago so and so happened - it is quite comical when you think about it isn't it - almost like a 21 yr old telling a 90 tear old they feel old!!!!!!

And that 90 year old probably feels a whole lot younger than that 21 year old realizes lol. It is comical to hear kids and their remember when stories
