I’m Inflating My Tires, and It Works!

By Jack Engelhard

Yes, I went ahead and inflated my tires and – well, this is terrific news! – it works! After buying gas on Monday, at four dollars a gallon, I did not have to buy gas again until Tuesday, and all that because I followed Barack Obama’s instructions – inflate, baby, inflate. I left the car in the driveway and took the train instead so maybe that’s the reason for the savings, but those are just details.

I tried some of the other methods that have been proposed in lieu of drilling – you know, “we can’t drill our way out of this” (why not?) – but have been less successful. I opened the gas cap and aimed the gas tank toward the sun, you know, for some of that solar energy, but nothing happened. My car wouldn’t run, wouldn’t even start. (I did get a nice tan, though.)
