The problem with big oil

Read this article and try not to be angry with Big Oil. These guys do not care that they make billions of dollars as the regular american is just trying to put gas in their car. These big oil companies could reduce the price of oil by 7 to 15 cents a gallon and still make billions in profit. This is an outrage.

There is nothing we can do about it though. You have to buy from some big oil company to put gas in your car. One day boycotts will not work. We need the government to step in and try something - and no, and gas tax holiday will not work. Maybe the government should try to improve the standing of the dollar against other currencies. Perhaps start dealing with inflation so everything is not so expensive. You do know that the gas prices have more than doubles in a year, but the government says inflation was only 3.2% last year. What a crock of crap.

I have been thinkng of getting rid of my Saturn. But it gets 30 miles per gallon. There is no way I will get rid of it without first finding a car that can get that kind of gas mileage.
