Historical Gasoline Prices

From :

"From 1986 to 2003, using 2004 dollars, the real national annual average price for gasoline, including taxes, generally has been below $2 per gallon," noted the Federal Trade Commission in a 2005 report absolving the industry of collusion. "By contrast, between 1919 and 1985, real national annual average retail gasoline prices were above $2 per gallon more often than not."

In other words, gasoline prices were lower than at anytime since 1919 for much of recent history. Some conspiracy! Maybe somebody should have been investigating consumers for "gouging" the oil companies.

Our April Meeting

Cathie Adams, president of the Texas Eagle Forum, our chapter of the national Eagle Forum came and spoke to us about radical Islam. She has put together a PPT presentation that bespeaks a lot of reading, research and compilation.

Good program, good company, good food (Thank you, Theo's Restaurant)! Wonderful evening.


Pictures of the club. I didn't get all the candidates' names. I guess I'll learn how to do this.
