Well, on average now, we have gas at $2.98 up here. Yes, it's down, but I'm still not planning any long road trips And a while ago, I wrote about the Hybrid hypocrisy that was displayed in DC but some members of Congress.
But I really didn't believe this when I heard it was going to happen. I can think of a several much better ways of showing the damage of this administration's energy bill. But then, this is yet another bad-parenting lesson of "do what I say, not what I do."
Today's lesson is:
When gas prices are through the roof... when oil companies are making record profits... when students are needing to drop out of college because of the cost of transportation... when dependence on foreign oil has become an addiction...
What you do as an elected official and candidate is get in a 1972 Cadillac which gets an average 11mpg and drive about 100 miles with a few stops to talk about how bad the gas situation is.
I gotta wonder... did Ray Meier leave the caddy idling while he held the press conferences or did he turn the engine off during stops? And at 11 mpg (that's MILES PER GALLON... 11 of them), did it really make a difference?
I've been traveling some with Michael Arcuri as he speaks throughout the 24th CD.
It was just a little over 100 miles from Utica to Geneva.
We head to Binghamton tomorrow morning, about 90 miles away.
If we started in northern Herkimer County, went to Binghamton, then on to Geneva, we'd cover about 300 miles.
Obviously, driving a car that gets 11 miles to the gallon these days is either foolish or greedy, at best. Thank you for showing us what not to do. I suppose it could be called leading by example, but only if we're supposed to do opposite of what the so-called leader chooses.
