gasoline prices

Gas prices are ridiculous! The public has been told that the prices are only going to continue in an increasing upward spiral. We have been told to expect prices to reach over $3.00 per gallon for the regular unleaded, by the end of summer. Just because the government and the media inform us of these increases, doesn\'t mean that we have to sit here and accept them. We have also been told in the past that we (the United States) are an international powerhouse. Our government has led us to believe that we have capable people in office,(including our so called negotiators). And we are to believe things like Mr. Bush has a great rapport with large oil producing/supplying countries. If these things are true, and we are exporting goods to these countries as well, then we need to increase the costs of their goods to an out-rageous proportion so they can comprehend the devastational affects that increasing prices has on ones\' paycheck/purchasing power. Why are we not using our power to get what we want Why are we not exploring the options of drilling for oil here, to cut costs, AND create jobs Just how much of a kickback are you getting Mr. President What are these other countries promising YOU, that we, the public DO NOT know about Many Americans have a considerable commute to work, and we would like to see you do something about the gas price increases. We understand that \"pipelines break\", and \"offshore accidents\" do happen, but enough is enough. How many more excuses, before somebody stands up and calls your bluff. I am constantly hearing, \"When are these gas prices going down\" And my answer is: \"When someone else is in office.\" Because one thing I am sure of, is when Bill Clinton was in office, I could afford to drive to work!


Melissa Sawyer Belleville, Il. I work for a gas station/convenient store, so I DO hear that question a lot, and I promise you, I am telling everyone the same answer I mentioned above. And I will encourage all of my co-workers, in every division, in every state to respond the exact same way.


  • Tim P There are links below to my petition as to link this petition of mine to this petition.
    This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

    This is for the thing on

    Reshaping the World Petition

    Pledge to Reshaping the World

    We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

    We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.

    There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.

    Almost a decade ago the United States was the land of stupidity and voters don't see into issues with politicians. People also don't believe issues with politicians. I was suffering not getting driving lessons when I had a learner's permit as this is a result from the economy crisis with budget crisis and fiscal issues. All those high gas prices is a part of the problem.
