I graduated from Wayne State in 2008, and started working at a job remotely. Very shortly after I graduated and suddenly had little driving to do anymore, gas prices fell from their then-record high of around $3.5-4/gallon (IIRC) back to more normal levels. “It figures”, I thought.
Go forward to today. I came back to WSU as an employee in January 2011. A couple months later, gas prices approach record levels in Michigan again, now that I’m back to having a daily commute.
The conclusion is obvious. The more driving I have to do, the more expensive gas gets. It’s all my fault. I’m sorry, everyone.
