According to an article in Newsweek, the high price of diesel is having a serious effect on Nevada's legal brothels. Business is down 45% for some brothels, and according to the director of the Nevada Brothel Owners' Association, it is in the lowest slump he's ever seen.

It seems the truckers are spending so much to fuel their rigs that they are spending far less on entertainment. Also, since some of the brothels are in the middle of nowhere, a lot of truckers aren't taking the detours to visit them.

Some brothels are turning to advertising to try and attract new business, while another is offering a recession special: the first 100 customers who show up with their tax rebate checks receive twice the "services" for the price of one.

How's that for a little economic stimulation?
