Gas Rant

Fuck these fucking gas prices, FUCK.

I am sick and fucking tired of being anally probed everytime i need to get gas..

THERE IS NO FUCKING REASON FOR THESE PRICES.

Maybe if the fucking federal government wasnt the fucking oil companies, they would fucking regulate these god damn mother fucking gas prices, and i could actually fucking afford to drive my fucking car.

FUCK!

They have raised prices almost 40 cents over a two month period, with no reason other than they are greedy. If thats not BULLSHIT, i do not knwo what is.

The fact that there are ~ 3.8 liters in a gallon means you're paying ~ 3.61$ per gallon.

I dont know if you guys heard already, but Exxon released today that they broke the record for profit making in a quarter. They made $10.7 billion in one quarter.

do people not understand. the govt cant cap gas prices. they dont run the gas companys. if we cap prices here, the companys will simply sell over seas . we already have low gas priced compared to the rest of the world

No we really dont, our government just doesnt tack on a gasoline tax like places in europe, they only do that over there to make people use gas more conservatively.

They are taking advantage of a war where americans are dying for pretty much no reason, to make them rich. Pretty weak if you ask me.

And i understand the price of crude oil has risen, as a direct response to china coming out of the old days of communism, but still they are raping the citizens of this country at a time when things are hard enough money wise.

bastards.
