Liquid Gold


My gas tank holds 20 gallons. With fuel prices approaching $3.50, I’m paying at least $50 every time I fill up.

Why?

Aren’t oil companies making enough money?

Oil prices per barrel went down, yet gas prices jumped tremendously.

Last summer when gas prices jumped so drastically, a congressional investigation into price gouging took place. This summer, prices are higher than they have ever been, yet no investigation has taken place.

Maybe our nation’s lawmakers are a bit too focused on Iraq, which is probably going to end up being worse than Vietnam.

  1. A 20 gallon tank?! That’s your problem right there! You probably drive a SUV that gets 10 or 12 miles to the gallon, right? As the old comic strip character POGO (ask your father!) would say, “We have met the enemy, and he is us!”
