You gotta love it when two hobbies come together. In this case, it’s my love of personal finance and my love of comic books. Here’s the cover of a 1978 issue of Richie Rich Inventions, in which Richie seems to be predicting the world of 2008.

[Comic book cover showing Richie Rich filling his car with coins and saying, 'The only problem is it runs on money.']

Of course our vehicles don’t really run on money, but right now it feels that way. The newspapers say that the record fuel prices could soon decline. I hope so. It seems insane to pay $40 to fill my car. (On the other hand, some people think that gasoline prices may double before long, and that we ought to rejoice when they do.)
