My heart goes out to those gas station attendants who went out in all kinds of weather, sometimes twice a day, to change the prices of gas upward, reflecting the rising cost of a barrel of oil.
Some were even caught short when their pumps were not calibrated to process gas when it hit $4. Last week, a barrel of crude dropped as much as $14.
I guess the weather has been too hot for the attendants to go outside to adjust the prices proportionately.
