The Lyrics

Look at the price of gas
Everytime I do it makes me gasp
How did it all get so bad
I wish that this was a passing fad

And it used to be so low
And we would waste it as we drove and drove
I never knew demand would get so high
Countries from Asia want part of the pie

And there is only so much oil
That they can try to find under the soil
And so the traders make the prices jump
And then we see the changes at the pump

Now add a few hurricanes
To stop supplies and give us all more pains
Life's better back when it didn't cost
Everything that I earn is now a loss

Oh oh oh

Every memory of filling up for five bucks
I guess now everyone is simply running out of luck
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

Every memory of when it didn't matter
Who gave a ride and used their gas, well that is shattered now
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

Remember we used to feel
Two bucks a gallon was just too unreal
But now we wish we could have that back
Cuz everyday we see the prices jacked

Now in England, Germany, and Norway
They pay five bucks a gallon every day
They've learned to go about and not use much
But we're so greedy we still have this crutch

But what else can I say?
Cuz we still suck it up and we still pay
They only way that we will ever change
Prices go higher, we change our ways

Oh oh oh

Every memory of filling up for five bucks
I guess now everyone is simply running out of luck
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

Every memory of when it didn't matter
Who gave a ride and used their gas, well that is shattered now
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

I miss the signs
of "ninety-nine cents"
But that's erased
We can't replace it
Unless I'm wrong
We'll never see it
So hard to pay
Too hard to stop it

But what else can I really say?
Cuz we will suck it up and we still pay

Every memory of filling up for five bucks
I guess now everyone is simply running out of luck
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

Every memory of when it didn't matter
Who gave a ride and used their gas, well that is shattered now
I hate to pay it, got to pay it
It's high, so high

Look at the price of gas
Everytime I do it makes me gasp
Everytime I do it makes me
