Pricing Panic!

Russia invaded Ukraine while I was drawing this. Not good! I’ll do a cartoon about it if I think of anything more insightful than that.

I don’t usually watch local news, but we have another winter storm coming, and was curious what the snow totals would be. There were lots of segments about gas prices, even before today’s invasion. I’m sure price fluctuations are a huge inconvenience to commuters, especially the ones who bought monster truck pedestrian smashers when prices were low.

But other fixed costs have been rising for decades and can’t be ameliorated by downsizing your home and family. If there were signs on the sides of every road illuminating this, maybe they’d get as much attention as car juice.
