High Gas Prices Provoke Strange Behavior

We’re all feeling the high gas prices this summer. I avoid going out whenever possible to conserve fuel (esp. since my car is far from fuel efficient). But as this article shows, these high gas prices have caused some people to do things that are downright odd:
A couple agreed to name their unborn child after a local radio host in order to win a contest for $100 in free gas. In Nevada, a brothel is giving away $50 gas cards to customers who spend over $300, and lastly, people who donate blood to the Red Cross are entered into a raffle to win gas cards.
I can completely understand the urge to find free gas. Hopefully prices wont go much higher, and in the meantime lets keep our fingers crossed for alternative fuel plans.
