This shit just PISSES me off!!

I had heard that gas prices were going to go up due to the recent disaster thanks to none other than hurricane Katrina, but this is ridiculous. I want to know where and when the price cuts on crude oil are going to take place, as promised by the Saudi's WEEKS ago. Just to make you all aware, gas price gouging is ILLEGAL. We cannot be used as doormats and expected to pay higher prices on gasoline (not that its not already high enough)because of a natural disaster. It absolutly pisses me off to no end that these pricks who own the convenience stores take such a devistating situation and try to make a profit. And don't even get me started on all the looting and that whole mess. That's a totally different bulletin all together. We, as Americans, not only have the right to put our feet down and to be heard, but we also have the obligation to do so. I don't know about yall, but I'm not the richest person in the world...far from it. And hell some weeks it takes all I have just to be able to transport my kids to and from their dad's house. But this shit HAS to stop...there is a website where you can report price gouging in your area..this is ILLEGAL and we've got to start somewhere and make our voices heard that we WILL NOT stand for this bullshit any longer. The website address is http://gaswatch.energy.gov/
It's already started in my area, and you can bet that I'm going thru the phone book reporting each and every one of them. Think about it people...fuel prices are increasing but our paychecks are not reflecting "cost of living" raises(or if they are it's surely not sufficient), and yet good old Uncle Sam is steadily screwing us in taxes, and ultimatly WE are paying for EVERYTHING..all the mistakes our so called governmental officials have caused due to their personal beliefs or political "deals" they've made in D.C.. You know why they can all sit in their nice homes, drive their nice cars, not having to worry about fuel prices, and eat the meals of kings? It's because they don't have to live under the laws they impose. Since when did WE as a PEOPLE (those with a backbone anyway) let some suit tell US what we HAVE to pay for and just "deal with it"?! The answer is simple..it happened when WE didn't give a shit enough to get out and vote..it happened when WE left it up to our elders to put someone in office, thinking it really didn't matter. Well guess what people? The time is NOW that we have to do something about it. Do you want America and ultimatly your lives to continue in such a downward spiral to the point that THEY are controlling each and every move you make? I guess my point is that WE need to start taking a stand for what we will and will not "deal with"...even if it's something small, grow a set and do something about it all. If you don't, then you will have no right to complain about the state of affairs in the weeks, months, and hopefully, years to come.

I'm in a Position where I quit Driving,my truck has 2-22 gallon tanks
44gallons X $3.00 a gallon where I'm at = $132.00 to fill up The truck & gets 5 miles to the gallon so a trip to Riverside & back is 600 miles =$360.00 . I net $458. every 2 weeks So the Gas Stations
have lost my bussiness, The AAA insurance has lost my bussiness,If every one called in sick for 1 week, didn't go to work or buy gas
then they might get the message,but they know we won't stop driving.

Wow...I mean...wow...go go girl...rant and let it out.

It seems as though the other countries aren't doing anything about it because they are hoping this shit going on will weaken us. We are supposedly one of the strongest countries. So, if a hurricane can knock us on our ass...they applaud...cheer and don't offer to help. It is sad isn't it?
