Gas Prices & Entire Country Hit 1981 Levels
Speaking of Reagan, gasoline now costs more than it did during the 1981 oil crisis. We can now look forward to a terrible recession, gas lines and yet another synth-pop era.
In what other ways is life pretty much exactly the same as 1981?
* A French dude was elected president of France.
* Guess how many French people voted in this year's election? More than the 1981 record!
* Somebody named George Bush is in the White House, screwing around with Iran.
* Rupert Murdoch is buying a respected newspaper he's not supposed to buy.
