The good news and the bad news

The good news:

Oil just went under $90/barrel. You can afford to fill up now.

The bad news:

You're getting laid off due to the banking crisis. You can't afford to fill up.

Some days, a guy just can't win...

Because of greed that our government is unwilling to check. Oil prices are down 40%, yet diesel and gas prices have only dropped 17-20%, and diesel is still generally 50-60 cents more than gas. I'm in Houston right now, and the difference is even greater. Diesel is $3.95 on this side of town and gas is $3.09.
