Video: “Gas Prices Got People in Texas Trading It In for a Horse…”
Sometimes you look out the window driving down the road and see something that really reminds you that you're in Texas. This video is a perfect example of that.
If I had a dollar for every time I tried to convince someone from another part of the United States that we didn't actually ride horses to school, I'd have a pocket full of cash. But when you see something like this on the internet, you sort of just want to eat your words.
TikToker @rosetx44 captured a quick video in February of a man riding a horse by a gas station and hilariously pointed out the fact that gas prices have been insane. Perhaps we should all take a few steps back in time and just start riding horses again.

"We ain't even in the country." I'm dead.
It's not totally out of the norm to see someone horseback riding in town, but it's certainly not something you see every day. As nice as it sounds to trade in your car for a horse, they would actually cost you quite a bit more overtime than filling up your gas tank.
Plus your car doesn't leave big poops on the road while you wait in traffic. That's another upside.
Does anybody find themselves riding their horse more to save on gas? I doubt it, but the sentiment is definitely felt. Gotta love that West Texas sense of humor. Ride on, man!
