your government is fucking you (part 1)

I filled my the gas tank in my Honda yesterday and was shocked at the price of gasoline. My little Civic gets great mileage so I had not yet had to pay this new even higher price that is now prevailing around the country. The last time I filled the Civic, the price was not $2.30 a gallon.

I have been telling people this for weeks and now I am gonna tell you guys. The price of producing oil is not goin up people, do you realize that? All the people involved in the oil trade are making huge barrels of money because the “market” has pushed the price of oil to astronomical highs. Did you hear me? I said that the price of producing oil has NOT gone up. It costs every oil producing country the same amount of money to create their product as it did 3 years ago.

So, what does this have to do with your government? Simple, nobody has taken any action to curb our dependency on oil. Let me correct myself, nobody has done enough to curb our appetite. And we are all going to suffer for it because the market for oil is not going to improve any time soon. With the growing economies of India and China, the demand for oil is only going to continue to grow as well. We may never see $1.50 gasoline again people.

I do not know what else to say. It seems that our so called leaders are sleeping at the wheel and the passengers (that means you) are just content to watch the vehicle sway wildly with no clear direction. I do know this, the people in power are not the ones suffering from high gas prices. It is the poor and middle classes that are going to feel the squeeze, and if those two classes do not do something to change the situation they will soon find themselves poor and destitute like many other Third World citizens out there.
