Gas prices went way up in H-town today
Get ready for the next round.I was on the road at 4:30 AM and all the little price mice were changing the signs. What really surprised me is the price of diesel, which went up about 20 cents to $2.45 a gallon, same price as premium. How exactly does a diesel save money now?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
