Much has been said about your amazing ability, to troubleshoot and problem-solve some difficult situations that people sometimes find themselves in. I have one such ordeal that I would like to share with you.
I have noticed the price of gas has dropped suddenly and rapidly, recently. Which is not a bad thing, but herein lies my dilemma:
It was my distinct understanding that when it rose, the price of my favorite vegetable, arugula, went up also. I love arugula as a garnish for smoked salmon with tarragon sauce or baked tilapia with arugula and pecan pesto. For me, there's no better culinary experience.
Now that gasoline is affordable once again, I cannot understand why the falling price has failed to translate to the transportation costs associated with the food industry. Can you help explain this anomaly to me?

There is this clown running for president who wants to tax corporations more , if he is elected. Maybe supermarket corporations are a little uneasy about lowering the prices right now, due to the fact that when he is sworn in, he will tax the oil companies more (causing another rise in fuel costs), or they just want to sock a little nest egg away for when he comes after them.
You see, Albertson's, Kroger, Publix, as well as your own local Jewel and Dominick's supermarket chains are run by a bunch of evil rich (mostly white) bastards that are not paying their fair share of taxes right now. The clown has already promised to raise taxes on the deadbeats that are not doing their patriotic duty, by supplying the government with unearned revenues (for the purpose of giving it to people that also do not earn anything). This will level the playing field and all will be able to afford arugula, as part of a healthy diet.
Hope this helps.
