Obama wanted High Gas prices and he did everything possible to turn his dream into your nightmare. Now his vision of Americans being Punished for using fossil fuels has come true with $5.00 a gal gasoline. It's pathetic.
We need a president that will do all that he can to lower costs, including fuel costs. That president is Mitt Romney. The Only thing Obama is good for is High Gas Prices,$5 Trillion more in National Debt, Starting Illegal Wars, Amnesty, more Poverty, and a US Credit Downgrade. Something not even Bush could pull off!
We need to get rid of Obama fast. The longer he's digging the hole, the farther we have to go to get out of his mess.
Why do you oppose the oil/gas companies making a profit?

They employ 10+ MILLION Americans.

Support your local oil/gas barons!!!!!!

Demand to pay $5 for gas!!!!!

Drive a 10mpg SUV!!!!!!!

Turn your heat up to 100 degrees this winter and open all the windows!!!!!!!

Use as much gas as possible, it's not like it's a finite resource (wink, wink)!!!!!

<quoted text>Attention nutorious!!! Liberals made the decisions not to build new refineries and shut down existing refineries in CA. And with their insane regulations concerning drilling and production the price rises, etc. In other words, you do not know what you're talking about so GFY.
NONE of that prevents the oil/gas companies from selling gas at a lower price.

They made $500+ BILLION in profits last year. Are you saying they can't lower their prices just a bit to help out average Americans and maybe make ONLY $400 BILLION in profits this year?

Not that I oppose the oil/gas barons from making HUGE MASSIVE DIGUSTING profits, while STILL receiving BILLIONS in taxpayer subsidies.

Gotta LOVE the oig/gas barons!!!!!

So drive your 10 mpg SUV to the farthest gas station while pulling your 50 ft RV and buy $5 gas!!!!!!!

I have run many companies and none of them had a profit margin as low as the oil companies do.

If you look at the volume of business they do and the amount of profit it is far lower than the groceries you buy......

Besides the government makes more per gallon of gas than the oil companies do.....
