This month, it’s all about The Wheel…

Petroleum is Aghast

CNN ran this editorial last week calling on Americans to quit whining about our gas prices.  By design perhaps, this prompted outrage from several of my well-educated friends citing plain logical fallacies.  “Why should we shut up because you’re paying more?”  Good point.  The fine folks in the UK should be whinier perhaps, but let’s make sure we have all the facts first.

Point 1:  Gasoline (or petrol if you’re from the Isles) costs $9.85 a gallon in England. 

Terrible, right?  Let’s take a closer look at this because there’s more than meets the eye with such a statement.
