    Where is the anger?

    Where is the frustration?

    Where is the outcry for lower gasoline prices?

    I know, it is “Supply and Demand”

    That’s what some want to believe and support. But, when a company completely controls supply and the demand remains about the same level, then the price for a gallon of gasoline as we see it today in nothing but outright gouging and greed.

    This is one of the few places where only the Federal Government has the power to implement a degree of control over the oil companies and the futures gamblers. Let’s face it, betting on the futures of oil is nothing more than “Gambling” and we, the American Public, are paying to support their gambling habit.

    $ 400 mi lion for a retirement package is a bit much. I wonder where all that money came from?

    It is time for a gasoline revolt to stop the American public from getting further ripped off.
    One thing for sure is that Congress doesn’t have the anatomical equipment to do it

    What company would that be?

    That would be the “OIL COMPANIES” They control the entire supply of gasoline. Don’t cha know.
