Are we going to let the oil companies push us back into another recession? When are we the people going to put some control on this? We haven't had any real peace about gas prices since price control went off in the seventies. We need it again, stop the oil company runaway with our economy.

Darryl, You are one of the people. You, like most people in the world compete for oil. Oil is sold at a world wide auction. If you don't feel that the benefits of this product are not greater then the price offered by other people, step aside. Make a rational decision, chose the next best alternative product when gasoline gets too expensive for you. Stop playing the victim and get control of yourself and your purchases.

Cant blame the Oil companies, gotta blame our Idiots in the whitehouse. Lets face it, if you dont want to spend 4 dollars a gallon tell the fools at the whitehouse to stop buying at that price, the US is the number one consumer, if we stop buying high then prices will be forced to come down. If you want cheap gas, it would be real easy for them to go back into the world of synthetic gasoline made from coal, but then that would mean people would need to be employed in the USA, and you know as well as i do that this will never happen.. Mostly because people in this country are way to stupid think for themselves.
