I guess Uncle Obama will give us money to spend on gas. He is the Candy Man.

Don't moan and complain about rising gas prices, the refiners are only trying to maximize profits and benefit their shareholders. That's how the free market works. You are free to reduce gas consumption
or set up your own refinery and sell gas for $1 if you please.

This is bull! How many times did we see it rise for the dumbest reasons? Every time oil rose gas rose, now oil can drop off the market and we still pay $2.00 a gallon gas? Come on! There is no reason for gas prices to be going up! This doesn't make any sense! Between oil prices over a hundred dollars less and more ethanol then ever there is no reason except the government is still letting big oil rape the consumer! If this is Obama's way of fixing the recession then we're in real trouble! High prices brought the recession and we are only going for a great depression! Even Greenspan warned about gas prices a year before he left!

There is more gas, more ethanol, more gas conserving vehicles, Who are they kidding? Oil is less then a hundred and ten dollars then at its highest and we still have to pay two dollar a gallon for gas? The fun will be when the depression hits because of gas prices! There is no need for a stimulus package! No one can stop the greed of the oil companies! Someone needs to take the oil industries families put them in barrels of gas and burn them to death! When the depression hits this will sound like a very good idea!

The oil companies are ripping us off again. We all need to set up a nationwide mass protest in response to this issue. Park our cars and pull out our bicycles and scooters. Use public transportation. As far as an economic depression is concerned, we are already in one now.
