This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — At what price did (or will) gasoline become “too expensive”?

Tom delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Chloe, David, Steve, and MC-B:

Until a reasonable alternative is developed, gasoline will never be “too expensive.”


Erin concurs, joined by MC-B:

It became (or will become) too expensive when we resign ourselves to it being expensive and refuse to explore alternate fuel options.


Kaitlin dissents, joined by Connie:

$3.00. That’s when I stopped rooting for the total to add up quickly so that I didn’t have to stand there filling up any longer.


Josh dissents, joined by Kaitlin:

$2.85 seems cheap now, but it was the first hike that made me drive less, and pine for the days not too long before when it was less than half the price.


Connie dissents, joined by Djere:

$4.00 is ridiculous! Somebody do something!!!


Job and Mike played no part in the determination of this issue.

Next time: What is the most underappreciated punctuation mark?
