The Lyrics

Gas prices seem to rise all the time
Because the government lies
Prices this high should be a crime
Lock "em up

I can't afford to drive across my hometown
At least till the cost of gas goes down
Better start digging for oil in the ground
Gotta be around
It's the craziest I've ever seen
Price of gasoline

Last week it cost Two-Seventy something
In the world that I'm livin' in
Maybe I'll go for a hike
Or might get out my old bike
I'll travel "round all fifty states
In my antique roller skates
I wish gas didn't cost hardly nothing
But it cost Two-Seventy something

It's a new week is the price finally low
Sign at the gas station says no
A full tank of gas made my friend go
To the poor house

He said that he had not felt quite so screwed
Since his prostate exam last week at noon
That sounds really mean and rude
But that's what he said
Take so much from every chump
When you go to the pumps

"Cause now it cost Two-Eighty something
In the world that I'm livin' in
High price paid when at the pump
Better be related to Donald Trump
These seem so extremely high
It may be cheaper for me to fly
I wish gas didn't cost hardly nothing
But it cost Two-Eighty something

Need a mortgage to fill my SUV
Get car runs on electricity
Because I hate that
Gas cost, gas cost

It cost over Two- Eighty something
In the world that I'm livin' in
Maybe I'll go for a hike
Or might get out my old bike
The price of gas is so high
It may be cheaper for me to fly
I wish gas didn't cost hardly nothing
But it cost Two-Eighty something

Cost Two-Eighty something
Soon it will be Three something

"Soon it will be Three something"; yeah, like by today, at least in out area. DKTOS, but good rhyming and some good lines, so 5s for you. If you get the chance, check out Johnny D's "Pay THIS Fer Gasoline, Man?".
