One voice is just a whisper. Until the voters realize that joining their voices together will be a shout to the politians that if they want our vote they must do something to resolve this problem. The problem is one of runaway greet: greedy oil companies, greedy station owners. As long as we remain silent and keep paying more and more, I guess we get what we deserve! I'm so tired of hearing: "there's nothing we can do about it". I for one am willing to do something. I'd like to organize a movement to send a message to all elected officials that this is a critical problem that needs their solution. As much as I don't like to say it, we need to reinstate some regulations on the oil industry. Deregulation was not supposed to be a blank check for economy-busting, greedy profit taking! As long as we keep electing these same do-nothing "public servants", they'll keep taking the oil money! What good will that money do them if we vote them out? Is anyone else out there ready to say: "I'm mad as hell and I'm not goint to take it anymore"? I wish I had the resources to print flyers and buy newspaper ads and anything else it would take to get a movement going. If anyone does, please contact me, I'll be a willing worker!
