Gas CEO's have to pay for what their wives spent during Xmass. They cant afford high interest rates. They just love to kick us when were down.

Keep raising the price of gas when people can't afford to buy food. If you keep asking people to do with less and less, they will and they will get used to it. I've stopped going out to eat, don't go to the movies and I have stopped leisure trips to the store. Now I only go out when I NEED something and then I make sure that's all I get when I go to the store. The funny thing is, after gas prices fell through the basement, I continued doing this. I've put quite a bit away, and I discovered that alot of the money I had been spending, I was blowing just because I had it. Thanks OPEC, you helped me see that I don't need to support you, all I have to do is use a little common sense in planning my budget. Keep jacking prices up and you'll find that there are more people like me. People will do more with less and you may find that demand is not what you thought it was.

Blame Bush!

Oh wait, he's not the Prez any more. So what is Obama, Pelosi, and the rest of the Dumbocrats going to do about it?
