After weeks of fighting for every drop of gasoline, I have come to the conclusion that something is wrong. Not with my beloved Chevy Silverado. Not with the oil companies or their equipment down in the gulf. Not even with the consumer, after all, we just want to get to work. The problem is with the calendar- you see, it's an election year.
I'm not going to go on a diatribe against Gov. Perdue. I am going to say that people need to calm down. USA Today reports that 30 percent of their survey group believes we are in a depression. While this may say much about the typical USA Today reader ( trust me, it's all been said before) it also speaks to the general mood of the American consumer. They are depressed and mislead.
