Proof that Gas Prices are Still Too Low

Yesterday I went to Lake Murray after yoga. Lake Murray is a park/reservoir in the City of San Diego that is popular with joggers, bird watchers, and fishermen. The weather was gorgeous. It was sunny, unusual for San Diego in June, mild temperature (mid-70's), with a gentle breeze. It was the kind of day San Diegans wish the Visitors Bureau would just keep our little secret.

In the parking lot was a new, white BMW. It's windows were closed, its motor was running, and its air conditioner was going full blow. I'll know that gasoline has reached its proper price when people begin believing that gasoline is too dear to waste. It is nowhere near that price yet.

Gas prices in San Diego today are $3.28 per gallon.
