When I drew this back in 2000, paying $1.70 for a gallon of gas seemed like highway robbery. By 2010, that would seem like a bargain, and we were convinced we’d never again see prices below $2. Well, we almost got there in the past few months, but not quite. Now, prices around here have crept up because of Hurricane Harvey, but that’s a small price to pay compared to the misery many of the storm’s direct victims are continuing to experience. As for gas-station road maps, they’re becoming obsolete at any price.
