Our government cares about oil, not people




Well, just like death and taxes, the gas prices took at least a 25-cent hike in the last 10 days for no apparent reason but to squeeze the last drop they can from the people. The workers are getting laid off or have hardly any work, and big businesses like the oil company rake in the profits.

Every year, the same oil company and oil speculators baloney push the gas prices way up, and when the dust settles, the gas price drops very little, and next year the cycle continues.

We need to reign in these thieves, but it will never happen because our government makes too much from oil companies and really doesn’t care about the people.

-- Richard Mullikin - Atascadero
