Happy New Year to the entire GasBuddy community!

GasBuddy Blog -- It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone.
2012 was a year that showed us unbelievable gas price spikes that result when oil refineries are compromised. We began the year with a BP refinery fire in Cherry Point, WA and massive spikes on the west coast.

The main lesson learned in 2012 is that the country is populated by a majority of idiots who do not take the time to educate themselves on issues and who are led to vote for socialism. As Michael Moore announced that he does not support the troops, perhaps it is time for the troops to stop supporting the idiots for whom they die.

2013 is not starting out really great as far as gas prices are concerned. Electrics for running around town and back and forth to work are starting to look ever better.
