The Picture Speaks Volumes


I was going through some pictures from our “big” snow storm of 2008 when I came across this one.

The picture shows one of our gas stations (we have two!) on 12/22/08.  This is shortly before Obama took office.  He had won the election but was not actually in office until January 2009.

Now let’s blow that up and take a good look………. Since we live in a small town, the prices at our gas stations are ALWAYS exactly 10 cents higher than the closest city.  So, on December 22, 2008 the price of gas in Portland was $1.59 and the price of Diesel was $2.25.
