There have been a lot of historic and exciting things happening in the U.S. over the past few days. It's impossible not to get caught up in the feelings of hope and optimism that are sweeping the country. However, as everyone knows, it's all about ME in this world, and so here is the event that has rocked my world recently:

I honestly never though I'd see sub-$2 gas again in my lifetime. As recently as a few months ago, in September, gas was $4.99 a gallon in Knoxville!! What event could possibly cause the price of gas to drop 62% in just a few weeks??? When the price spiked to nearly $5 a gallon, there were howls of outrage and promises to investigate possible price gouging, but I have no idea what would case gas to have such a sudden and dramatic price drop. Not that I'm complaining, and I'm sure it will be short-lived, but still . . . it's the first of many things I don't understand!
