One of my least favorite topics of conversation in the world is the price of gas. “Gas prices” for short. I think my aversion to the topic stems from the way in which gas prices are traditionally covered by mainstream media outlets, discussed at the barber shop, prayed for in churches, etc. It’s an enormously complex interplay of politics, economics, ecology, culture, power, and much, much more but what I often see on the television or hear on the radio is a quick two minute analysis of the day’s market along with the price of a barrel of oil.
