Fill the Trunk!

It is not uncommon for people to confuse natural gas, crude oil, and gasoline. Most of us are intimate with the volatile nature of gasoline prices. We don't pay attention to them when they are abnormally low.

An old Bloom County cartoon showed a delerious motorist exclaiming "fill the trunk!!! fill the trunk!!!" during a trough in the gasoline price cycle. Unfortunately, I can't find an online version of the cartoon.
