We picked a good time to do a cartoon on gas prices as I didn’t see many if any, in relation to the war in Ukraine, before we published this on Sunday. But the very next day, I saw several.
Since then, this has been one of the leading stories from the war. Now President Biden has banned imports of Russian oil and Republicans are back to blaming him for increased gas prices.
Most cartoonists have now drawn a cartoon on gas prices in relation to the war. In fact, I’ve drawn two more since this cartoon. I even have more ideas on it which I should sit on for now.
Go read my editor’s column.
Oh yeah, the price in this cartoon was the national average on Sunday.
Music Note: While coloring this cartoon, I listened to Beck, Pete Droge, and since I was in the Petes, Pete Yorn.

Watch me draw:
And you are $2.00 USD cheaper than Alberta, Canada, an oil producing province. Go figure!
“Oh yeah, the price in this cartoon was the national average on Sunday.”– Hooboy, I wish I could pay that national average. Even at Costco it’s now $5.25. Some places are now over $7.

It’s the gas prices, stupid! … “This has been one of the leading stories from the war. Now President Biden has banned imports of Russian oil and Republicans are back to blaming him for increased gas prices.”
