So if you bought a Chrysler back then, you now have:
1) A guarantee to be able to pay $2.99/gallon for gas that, in my area, is going for about $2 per gallon;
2) A hefty four-wheeled liability whose value dropped like a rock the minute you cleared that last dealership speedbump;
3) One of the least-reliable makes on the road; and
4) The prospect of watching later models come out at ever-cheaper prices as U.S. automakers do anything and everything to sell cars into a recessionary environment. (Which will further exacerbate #2 above, mind you.)
Woo hoo. Gotta be feelin' good about that purchase.
(BTW, today, one can fill up here in Norman for $1.99/gallon. Seeing that price just feels ... odd.)
