I have begun this petition today, April 11, 2005, in lieu of the current ever increasing gas prices in the United States. Not two days ago, a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in San Diego went for around $2.45, and today it is nearly $2.65. We are talking a matter of several days in which the gas rates have increased by 20 cents without any warning and I am suspecting even more dramatic increases to come. We, as a nation, must take this petition to congress and go up in arms, so to speak, or else nothing will be done about these increases. The American people can no longer be expected to pay these enormous prices for gasoline and something must be done. It is an obvious fact that Americans cannot boycott gasoline because of rising prices simply because we are too dependant upon it, but we can make sure that we are not getting the raw end of the deal. Please sign this petition before June 1st so that I may send it to our Congress before it is too late. It is an American duty to stand up for what you believe in as our forefathers did not too long ago.
The sponsers for this petition are those men whom bravely stood up to the British when the taxes bacame too high and unbearable during the early days of colonialism. Those men whom fought bravely to bring this country liberty and freedom. And those men whom defied their British persecutors and tossed the tea into the Harbor.
