Gas prices

It occurred to me yesterday, as I put half a tank of gas into my car, that it was just as well that I was filling it now even though it wasn't necessary -- after all, by the time I needed to completely fill the tank, prices might have risen again.

And then it occurred to me that, when a spendthrift like me is thinking like that, it's practically the textbook definition of runaway inflation. Scary stuff...
