    May be less where some of you are, but it's risen about 60 cents where I am and now going over the four dollar mark for regular unleaded.

    God I'm so sick of this lousy ass economy!

    Wait..look over there.. Mitt Romney hasn't shown his tax returns and there's a really stupid republican out in Missouri. Gas prices? Food prices? Not when there are really important things to obfuscate a record with.

    But..........oil companies are private sector businesses. Why are right wingers pissed at them? They are simply "raising taxes" on their customers. Isn't that how a business is run? Maximize profits at any cost? Thats all they're doing. They should be praised.

    You don't expect them to focus on anything important, do you?

    Watch for a another release from the strategic oil supply to try to drop prices before the election rather than the sensible thing of lifting ethanol standards.

    And then he'll call a press conference and pound on his chest about how wonderful he is and how he did it for us when it's a proven fact it does little to lower prices and just draws down the reserves.

    This gas price problem can be fixed very easily. Ask the oil companies to stop trying to maximize their profits. Tell them the following:

    1- People in the US are basically forced to consume energy through cars, air conditioning, cooking
    2- Because of that, we really dont have much choice but paying for it
    3- Thus, raising their prices is just like raising taxes
    4- They are a business, not a government
    5- They should treat the citizens the way we want our government to treat citizens and STOP RAISING TAXES (in this case, their prices)

    Will the private sector gas companies abide by our requests and run their business like a government by not raising taxes (prices)?
