...and thats how brainwashing works. Isnt it fascinating? Its also fascinating that the government just sits on their hands and does nothing to investigate this obvious case of ripping off the consumers. Then again, since when did you expect the government do anything besides take your money?

Gotta get back on topic, or we'll have a nasty political debate going on.... So I will hold my thoughts on what was said. Point is, gas prices are still way too high and we need to somehow mass enough people to perform a task of some sort that gets the message across. I'm not sure, but I think in other countries, when the people don't like something, they riot until it'* fixed, or other terms are agreed to.

I think we're back up to 3.30 somethin' for premium. Honestly though, there'* nothing we can do about it. (Unless you buy a diesel and run off french fry oil)

And while I don't agree with the prices, it'* not being ripped off, it'* called supply and demand. Ya don't like it, start your own charity and give away gas.

Shell gas prices:
2.65
2.75
2.85


Oh, and not to fuel the fire, but gas in UK is around 5-6 bucks a gallon
So I'm happy with our prices right now.
