Gas Prices Are Artificially Inflated!

Posted by thetraveldoctor on May 7, 2008

Well, I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore! That’s right, gas prices in the US are through the roof! And do you know why they are so high? Well, it’s not because there is a shortage of oil, because there is plenty of oil in the world at this time. It’s not because China is using more oil then they did last year.

So why are oil prices so high? IT’S THE DAM FUTURE TRADERS! It’s all speculation on the futures market. We have a bunch of greedy future traders that are bidding up the price of oil. An just yesterday another jerk that call himself an investment analyst predicted that oil will go to over $200 a barrel! Yah, if you bid it up to $200 it will go to $200 because it’s all speculation. What the hell is wrong with these people. 

What needs to be done, and quickly is to sell off  the oil futures and the price of oil will plumit overnight. Otherwise, people are going to be pushed to the breaking point and will find other ways to get around. Then the demand will drop and the price will come down. I have parked my car and I am taking public transportation. I refuse to give these jerks anymore of my hard earned money.

So here is what you can do. Park your cars or cut back your driving by 1 gallon a week. If everyone that drives in the US cuts back 1 gallon a week we would send a clear message to everyone from the traders to the oil companies.

Get Mad as hell and let’s stick it to the very people that are sticking it to the American Public!
