A Texas-based cupcake shop recently gave its hilarious take on rising gas prices across the U.S.

HayleyCakes and Cookies, a cupcake shop in Austin, created a custom cookie highlighting high gas prices using a reference to Dolly Parton‘s hit song, “Jolene.”

“Gas prices are so high I just saw Dolly Parton carpooling with Jolene,” the icing on the cookie reads.

The cupcake shop also shared a photo of the custom cookie to its Instagram account, writing, “😂😂” as the caption. The post received over 9,700 likes with one user calling the cookie “brilliant” and another saying, they thought it would “make Dolly laugh.”

“Jolene” is Parton’s well-known song about a woman named Jolene who tries to go after another woman’s man.

The only thing that needs to happen now–besides gas prices dropping, of course–is for the cupcake shop to send Parton a few of their custom Dolly and Jolene cookies. Well, that, and for Parton to put a little satire spin on “Jolene.” I’m thinking she could call it “Gasoline.”

Gasoline, gasoline, gasoline, gasolineeee, the prices at the pump are too damn highhhhhh,” or something like that.

According to AAA Gas Prices, the average gas price by state as of today (Jul. 15) is over $4.00 in most areas of the U.S.
