Freakonomics and Fuel

Question everything.

That's the primary conclusion of Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Examines The Hidden Side of Everything. In this hit new book, authors Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner examine all sorts of data and draw some suprising conclusions. Naturally, I turned to the Internet to see if they had a blog. Yes!

Today's entry contains some eye-opening thoughts about the price of crude oil. When you think about it, gas (even as high as it has soared this week) is still relatively cheap for the value we get for quick transportation. Read what experts think might happen once/if we drop out of this "fantasy pricing." I shudder to think.
