Nothing is certain but death and taxes.
That’s a fairly common adage that I’ve heard for so long. I really think there needs to be an amendment to that to include the fact that someone is going to be complaining about gas prices, no matter what the cost.
If gas prices go up, the consumers complain. Nobody likes to pay more for gas than they did at their last fill-up, and when it crosses certain psychological thresholds (e.g. $4/gallon) the complaining gets worse.
So, when gas prices go down, everybody’s happy, right? (Especially the credit card companies that pay rewards for gas purchases)
