Workin’ At The Car Wash Blues for My ‘Baby’.

This seems to be the hardest time of the year to keep your car clean. April showers create May flowers AND muddy conditions and splash opportunities for your vehicle. Most people just pay the $5 or $6 and roll through the automated car wash, but that's not for my baby!

The Future is Now: A Real Flying DeLorean? [VIDEO]

I am a die-hard fan of the "Back To The Future" movie series.  I love the concept, the characters, and that time machine!  I was able to see a DeLorean at Back To The Bricks a few years back, and there were several of the slick sedans at last year's Bricks Flicks.

 

As much as I love the fantasy of it all, it looks like more and more of a reality.  I brought you a story a few months back about Nike producing the Air Mag, the shoes Marty McFly wore in Part 2 during a stop in 2012.  What else is a reality now?  A flying DeLorean!

Gas Prices Hit $4 a Gallon, Are You Feeling it Yet?

We've been past the $4 a gallon threshold before. Last time it happened, it was in the summer months. That made it a little easier to take, as a lot of folks hopped on motorcycles or bicycles. Many carpooled or just drove less. Vacations were taken closer to home. Demand went down and so did the price. It was just a matter of time before it went back up, and this time it comes when the weather is less conducive to other forms of transport (bikes, motorcycles, walking). Most Michiganders are forced to pay the price to get around for work and other obligations, at least until the weather warms up. By then, will we be forced to pay $5 a gallon?

G.M. Pauses Production of Chevrolet Volt

With the price of gas reaching the $4 a gallon threshold, you would expect sales of trucks and SUV's to be slow. General Motors has announced that it will halt production of the Chevy Volt for five weeks beginning later this month because dealers had more inventory than they need. Production of the Volt is scheduled to stop on March 16th and resume in late April, a G.M. spokesman, Chris Lee said.

Yikes! Gas Prices Spike Again

Gas prices spiked in the Flint area just before Christmas. They took another jump just before the end of 2011. Less than a week into 2012, the price jumped again.

Unleaded gasoline could be had for less than 3 dollars a gallon in Flint a few days before Christmas. Now it's 3.59 just 3 weeks later.

Did demand/consumption bring about the price hike? Negative. Instability in the Middle East has caused speculators to jack up the price of crude oil and unleaded gas on the commodities markets.
