People are angry about gas prices. They have jumped up and stayed up for the last few years. It's been hard on the budget!
Many people take the easy route and blame the oil companies, despite the facts that show other factors cause the oil price to change and that the oil companies only make 8.2% profit...not exactly a bragging point.
People are clammoring for government action. Socialism. It's shocking how "red-blooded Americans" are so willing to abandon the American way to save money on gas. The amazing thing is that a $1.50 increase in the price of gas is all it takes for some to jump into full-blown socialism. $1.50.
What is your price?
