Gas gouging........what else is new.

Just watching on the news..................the gas gouging gas companies have just raised their prices around here from $1/litre to $1.20/litre because of the storm in New Orleans..............................That.s over $4/American gallon............

Our wimpy government will do absolutly nothing about this.................

Expect a rise in the US, if it already hasn't happened............

Sorta what you would expect if you haven't built a new refinery in over 30 years so your 100% refining capacity is 17% below usage and don't allow exploration for new reserves, isn't it?

I have an idea... First we pull our boys out of Iraq, then we build some refineries, who cares if some people whine about it. Next we nuke their ***** and take their gas. That way there will be peace in the middle east (nobody to fight) and we can ship criminals there to work if they're on "good behavior", and illegal immigrants until they work for their ticket back to where they came from (usually mexico or asia).

Yeah, lets start a war in a region, then when they actually put up a fight, lets pull everybody out and nuke the country into the dirt. That'll teach them.

You're kinda on the same track with me dude. I say bring the boys home and have them clean up the Gulf Shore area, get our refineries back into operation, build some new ones and tell the Venezuelans and Arabs to piss off. If they like the oil that much, let's see how well they like drinking it.

Yes I'm pissed off, I just spent $43 filling up a Honda Accord.
