Expensive/cheap gas: Either way, a transfer of U.S. wealth.

I noticed some numbers on oil prices that Ryan posted on The Bellows a few days ago, and thought that they were screaming out for some sort of graphical representation. Rather than spend a lot of time crafting some sort of polished graphic to illustrate the point, I resorted to the kind of design that seems to get everyone’s attention these days more effectively anyway: A gas prices sign.

What does each tiny increase in prices mean for our national spending?

And who exactly is profiting when nearly 2/3 of our oil comes from points beyond our borders?
