We Must Cut Back

After years of sky-rocketing summer gas prices, consumers have finally had enough. Many are just not going to take it any more, they are refusing to buy any more gas.

Many would-be travelers will skip the traditonal summer vacation. "We almost killed each other last year on a cross country drive," says exasperated mother of nine, Anne Moore. "I just can't stand the idea of two weeks trapped in a car with the family. That's not a vacation, it's torture." Airline travelers are staying home too. Ralf Upp of Tulsa says, "When gas prices are up people drive around with cars on empty. They don't let airline passengers see the plane's gas gage. It makes me nervous!"

"I don't have time for travel anyway," says Ralf, "without my 5,000 horse power, 6-foot cutting deck mower it's gonna' take a while to cut the grass."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
