Gas Prices....BP....Profits

Postby andysbeef » Sat Jan 03, 2009 1:48 pm

Here’s one for the Feds, do something constructive for a change and don’t just waste our tax dollars: Gas prices should be unlawful to go up if excessive company profits are being made or the ‘station’ had a delivery and paid more than the last delivery and only if their storage tanks were at 50% (and not get a delivery just to raise prices). It’s not ‘Price Fixing’ but gas prices go up on Wednesday and down on Monday. Gotcha for the weekend.

What a crock.....OH I forgot, politicians with friends in the business.....gee thanks Pres. you are really looking out for 'We The People' aren't you?, and how much did you and your buddies make????


Crude has been dropping like a rock in the last 7 days or so and the price of gas has gone up .49/gal......price fixing.......naaaaaa. Oh lookie, the Feds are smiling as they stuff their pockets full of cash......friends??? no not me says the Democratic Congress and a Republican President!.......YEAH, BS!

How about this latest piece of news. The politicians & the automotive companies want to impose a gasoline tax that will keep the cost of gas NO LOWER than $3.25-$3.50/gallon. Reason: This will force us to buy the smaller more fuel efficient cars as well as the electric cars when they become available. This is socialism at it's best & Karl Marx would be proud to know that what he espoused is being seriously considered by a capitalist nation.

This country is getting really scary - I mean really. Land of the free my ass. All these politicians are really screwing up a good thing. I keep saying we need to abolish the parties, fire them all and "we the people" need to be in charge - look at the concept of a Jury - a beautiful system where the general public makes a HUGE decision and gets paid peanuts to do it. We need a volunteer "congress" and then we, as a country vote! - I'm sure it's not that simple but it would sure stop all this gas price bullshit.

I truly think that there are cars designed and operating on solar power the public will never see. All this about cost- efficiency and the battery life is a conspiracy for sure.

Think about it...pay extra upfront or buy gas for the rest of your life....hmmm, makes sense to me.

The geniuses who designed these cars were paid big fat checks by the oil companies to shut the hell up or book a one way ticket with Hoffa. The oil business is the mafia, the real "boss" of this country backed by greedy politicians and our stupid government control.

Tell me there isn't price fixing!!!! Earlier in the week the news reported that cause of the debt ceiling debacle and the reduction in our credit rating that the price of gas would be drastically reduced in the near future! Well, guess what folks. The news reported yesterday that the price of gas will go up by .35 (cents) per gallon in a couple of days and no explanation why.

PRICE FIXING????? NAAAAAA, just our government getting involved....again!

Here's CRAP for ya:
BP paying over 23 billion dollars for the Gulf Region rehab....then paying OVER 1 billion dollars in fines PLUS all the law suites for who knows how much. Then think about this:
1) They aren't even hinting about bankruptcy cause they are wallowing in profits like all the other gas companies.
2) We still pay around $4/gal for gas.
3) We the 'TAXPAYERS' are saddled with the cost of removing abandoned gas stations/buried tanks while ALL the gas companies are laughing up their sleeves at us.
Make any sense?

HAD ENOUGH YET?

Well somewhere one of the posts back about 6-7 years ago, when the gas was over $3/gal. and going up, I stated that gas SHOULD be no more than $1.50....with the gas at $1.50 the greedy gas companies would still make enough money. Well guess what.....today I filled up my truck for $1.49/gal. This is years later with the inflation added in.
