An Open Letter to America About the Price of Gas...

Dear everyone in America that lives outside of Southern California,

I took this picture today when I filled up my tank. See that price that's slightly highlighted? Yeah, that's what I paid per gallon. I know that, on average, the price of gas in South Carolina is about 30-35 cents cheaper than southern California. But I don't live there anymore. So, I guess in a way, the southern California sunshine is costing me $3.49 a gallon.

I know this makes me sound super old, but I remember being a freshman in college and paying .89 a gallon. What's the cheapest you've ever paid?

Just wanted to make you aware of my plight...

Angry at Shell,
Josh

Growing up in SoCal, I don't think I've ever seen gas below $1.00

Sadly I struggle to remember gas being below $2.00 lately. I'm going to cry.

I can definitely remember .99 and maybe even .97.

I remember my parents refusing to pay a dollar! "A dollar, that's way to high" :'(
