Sobering Thoughts for the day.

When the Coalition of the barely willing illegally invaded Iraq just over 5 years ago 1 Euro bought you one US dollar.

Today just less than 5 years after President George Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" one Euro will buy you one US dollar and 59 cents.

Oil was US$20 a barrel and closed today at US$117.48.

A gallon of regular unleaded gas cost about 90 cents US and today the average price for regular gasoline across the USA was a record $3.508 a gallon - U.S. Energy Information Administration.
