Friday Funny: the Onion Asks, 'Why Are Gas Prices So Low?'
The Onion is a satirical site, so an uncredited article on the subject of gas prices resembling an FAQ document is not to be taken seriously. Except that the subject of the satire is on a very serious conversation with very serious implications. A sample of the fictional exchange of questions and answers:
Why are gas prices so low?
Jesus, why can’t you just enjoy this for a minute and not worry about that?
How long will gas prices remain low?
Who benefits from the price drop?
Anyone who’s alive to enjoy low prices but dead before the full consequences of fossil fuel usage are felt.
And one more for good measure, but there's a lot more at the site:
Where does this put green technology?
Oh, we don’t need that anymore.
