well trained consumers

I bought gas today for $3.53.  I was quite pleased with that. 
Aren't we well trained.  When the price was charging up at 5 and 10 cents a day and went screaming past 3.53 I was not pleased.  But after it hits over $4/gal and then inches its way back down a penny at a time, I am happy to pay 3.53.
They train us so well to be ripped off on a daily basis and be content with it.

  1. So true!! Sometimes I wonder if they raise it way up deliberately and for no real reason--and then slowly lower it just to get us to stop complaining about the price of gas.
