Gas prices in our part of California peaked at $4.59/ga the weekend Sketch was born (mid June). Since then my pocketbook, like much of the country's, has enjoyed the slow but steady reduction in gas money hemorrhage.
A few weeks ago I was driving with Addy and the following short conversation ensued:
ME: Wow, gas prices have dropped about a penny a day since Sketch was born.
ADDY: That's a bad thing.
ME: Why? (I don't necessarily disagree with her, but I wanted to know her reasoning.)
ADDY: Because then people will buy more.
It seems that already Addy understands more about supply and demand than many elected officials. I couldn't be more proud . . .
