I knew that San Luis Obispo County had among the highest gasoline prices in the U.S. of A. when I moved here. And as of Memorial Day weekend, well, prices under $4 a gallon are just a memory as the lowest priced pumps in the County (at Costco, membership required) hit $4.01.9. It was only a week earlier I had put a little over 14 gallons in the Wendellmobile at $3.93.9 for a total bill of $54.00 even.

Still, here I am in the outskirts, 1.9 miles from the San Luis Obispo City Limits and 1.7 miles from the Pismo Beach City Limits (easy to get to if I don’t take a wrong turn at Albuquerque). And 2.8 miles from Avila Beach where a naked man was arrested for trying to have sex with a taxicab. Maybe he has the right idea… with the price of gas so high, we should expect to get more out of cars than just transportation.

Okay, I just disgusted myself.
