Gas broke 4 dollars a gallon here today, it was 3.79 when I went to work, 3.89 when I got there, 3.99 when I left, and 4.09 by the time I got home.
I'm going to be figuring out what I can do to get these prices lower, what petitions I can sign, what I can do in general - this is not right. We
need to put the pressure on OPEC to lower the prices, or start pumping more out of the ground - when prices hit 3 dollars a gallon they claimed it was
based on supply and demand, and that they would not increase the supply. Now its over 4 a gallon and they still aren't increasing supply? I'm
hoping what I'm reading wasn't true about Kissinger making a deal with the arab nations in the 70s, where we would buy their oil (etc etc) and the
end result is $200 dollars a barrel, take over their countries, and keep selling it at 200 a barrel under the control of the US/UN.
We need to start or join a movement to get these prices down, where is the free market on this one?
