Has anyone noticed that we're (Avg Americans) almost to the point of acceptance when it comes to HIGH gas prices at the pumps? It was the plan all along...
Has everyone forgotten the HUGE spikes in gasoline prices at the pumps which were based on speculation of terror, weather and other falsities which never materialized? Were these "profits" that were extorted from us ever returned to us in the form of lower prices?
LOL Scam after Scam after Scam... Why do we continually tolerate the intolerable!
Exactly, the $2.25 price per gallon were all about getting people used to paying around $1.90 or so without a complaint. Now when the local Costco has regular unleaded for $1.85 people go nuts. It was not that long ago, that gas was going for a buck thirty five or so. We have been fleeced, and no one coming on here will convince me that the oil companies did not plan to drive prices high, using the WOT as cover. Thanks GW, for doing nothing about this, we have been fleeced with the permission and blessing of the "Powers that Be" again.
Adjusted for inflation, gas prices are around where they've been for the past 18 years.
