Bad Gas

Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Chocolate Banana, German Chocolate Cake, Egg Nog and Boysenberry.

Yogurt Cone Day! All yogurt cones are $1.85 all day long (regularly $2.72).

Last night, Iran experienced some civil unrest as they began the process of rationing gas across the nation. It seems odd to think that a country that exports so much oil, over 4 million barrels a day, would have to ration gas; however, it seems that in over 30 years of oil dominance, Iran forgot to increase its refining capacity.

"Iranians are accustomed to gasoline at rock bottom prices. After a 25% hike in prices imposed May 21, gas sells at 38 cents per gallon."

So the next time you're feeling sad about your gas bill, just remember the harsh times faced by the Iranians. It's good to know that the energy crisis isn't just in the US or the west.
