At the Pump


Let us return to a happier time

when gas came out of Oklahoma

and Texas

nobody thinking of Opec

the New York Stock Exchange

or Iran

Getty building a fortune based on

Saudi Arabia Kuwait

and our new love of gasoline

the Model T going down the road

took us to places we would never go

before Lindbergh and Amelia

reasons for the greed to grow

now we can’t be without it

gas war of the 50s

short supply and lines to pump

going around the block in the 70s

almost European prices in the 2010

So crude

At the Pump
