Ripped Off Again!!

I have been hearing a lot lately about how the price of oil is coming down, partly due to the mild weather. However, the price of gasoline has not budged at the local gas stations. So the oil companies are ripping us off again. As soon as the price of oil goes up, the price of gasoline goes up instantaneously if not sooner, but when the price of oil goes down, the oil companies rake in the profits for weeks at a time before lowering the price of gasoline. And these oil companies are getting government subsidies financed by my tax dollars!! So I am getting double ripped off. Supposedly the government is looking toward ending these subidies. They could not so it soon enough. The oil companies don't deserve a penny!!

So Sayeth The Shack

Be very afraid, guard your wallet big time if the government, in its infinite xc,xcmkzmnkn wisdom, is looking into some company possibly bilking us! Studying the oil companies will probably end up allowing them to just gouge the consumers more. Agree with me John, you know I'm right!
