Watching one of my favorite libertarians on television again, John Stossel commenting an the escalating price of a gallon of gas. One of his guests commented on how amazing he thought it was that gas is so cheap. That's right cheap. And you know what I think he's right. Look at everything that goes into pumping just one gallon of gas into your car. The raw material oil, likely came from a foreign country by workers that need to be paid to drill for it. The oil companies pay the boat to and it's crew to get it here. A company then has to be paid to refine it into all the various blends that every state and country requires, then it has to be hauled to a gas station. After ALL of that a gallon of the stuff only costs a little over $3.00. A gallon of milk costs that much. A pint of beer costs that much and neither take nearly the effort to get into the hands of the consumer. Most countries pay far more for a gallon of gas. Maybe we all better just shut up about it and keep our noses down lest someone figure out how cheap it really is.
