From my "Generates Mixed Feelings" File

Living in an oil producing state, I get a little giddy when prices rise because I know this will be of benefit to the state and to local producers, not mention the mineral rights the parish has holding on as well.

On the other hand, as someone who spends half of his life in a car, when gas prices rise it means that more of my meager salary goes only one place, into the tank and then into the atmosphere. I guess I will have to buy one of those hybrid cars the next time around, but of course, if I break down out here in the country, will anyone know how to fix it?
