    An interesting web page that puts it in perspective.


    When you factor in today's more fuel-efficient vehicles, even with today's higher prices, we're still paying less to drive a mile than our grandfathers did in the 50's, or our fathers in the late 70's.

    And note that only in fairly recent times (the 90's) did it ever get really much lower than it is today. So it only looks like things are bad now relative to recent history that has spoiled us.

    Don't buy into the hype. Enjoy the news and spread the good word.
