Running on Empty

Here is an interesting report from a blog that I read to track latest advancements in environmentally friendly cars. The two articles claim more and more people are running out of gas. The AP article claims that most people are either waiting for their paychecks or fill up with less gas and therefore don't have as much. Its an interesting problem hitting people as its not just gas prices but food prices as well. So, if your budget had wiggle room before, it needed enough room for more expensive food and gas. Thats tough for most of us regular people. I guess thats where the economic stimulus will go to...I wonder if its a coincidence that when most Americans find themselves with some extra cash the oil companies find themselves taking some extra cash at the same time...
