I originally wrote this in mid March of this year, but for some reason never pulished it. I think the sign is still true today, 8 months later.
Thanks to Sheila for this one. Fuel prices have jumped close to a buck a gallon since we headed south last fall and when you use a gallon of diesel every 7 or 8 miles while travelling thousands of miles every year you gotta laugh, there’s just not much else you can do.
It’s that old see-saw effect. We get excited about our strong Canadian dollar compared to the US dollar, but of course our strong loonie is a result of, you guessed it, higher oil prices. When our buck drops so do oil prices but now everything else we buy in America costs us more.
Which brings me back to my headline: “We can still laugh.”
