weird feeling

I was driving down the road today and had a strange feeling like I went back in time. I saw gas at $1.85 a gallon and was thinking that the DOW was at 7500. Strange!

At that price I'm surprised your 'weird feeling' wasn't the precursor to a stroke!

I filled up the ol' Ford this a.m. - paid $2.32 for diesel.
I was positively giddy! What a contrast to the $5.05 I paid last summer - obscene.
