Pay and pay and pay at the pump:
Reducing sulfur in gasoline and tightening emissions standards on cars beginning in 2017, as the Obama administration is proposing, would come with costs as well as rewards. The cost at the pump for cleaner air across the country could be less than a penny or as high as 9 cents a gallon, depending on who is providing the estimate.
An oil industry study says the proposed rule being unveiled Friday by the administration could increase gasoline prices by 6 cents to 9 cents a gallon.
The EPA says it won’t effect gas prices by even a whole penny, to which I say HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA and then gaze longingly at the painkillers and sleeping pills.
The other side of the story is, this would have been a much big deal under Reagan, when gas was so cheap. Adding 9 cents a gallon would have increased the price of gas by over 10%! But when Obama does it, it’s no big deal because 9 cents on top of four bucks is hardly nothin’.
Also, the chocolate ration has been increased to 20 grams and we’ve always been at war with Eastasia.
