Gasoline

So, Ryan filled our van up with gas tonight...it cost $80. That's right, 80 effing dollars!
I sure wish I owned an oil company right now and could make millions everyday off people having to have gas to get to their jobs and see their family. I sure wish I could have such control over everyone so as to charge an outrageous amount of money for something that doesn't really cost what I claim it costs me. I sure wish I was insanely rich and had lots of stuff and didn't care about anyone or anything but myself and my money and my only goal was to see how much stuff I could collect. Then I would be happy.

The day that I learned the government can make a gas station change the price of the fuel ALREADY IN THEIR TANKS was the day I knew something was effed up with how things are run.

Gas station buys gas on Monday for $1.15 a gallon wholesale, and charges $3.49 retail. The next day the goverment could call and say they have to charge $3.69 for the gas they paid $1.15 for two days ago! Lame!

(that's right, the Government can make phone calls! Not a person from the government, the Government itself can call you at any time!)

I don't think the gas station guy on the corner makes that much profit on a gallon. do they?

I don;t think it is the gas station owners that make all the money. I think it is the big oil companies.

Chris.... I know you're rather new to this blogging world (like... several months new) but.... we call "them" The Man. Correct references will be greatly appreciated. By The Man.

In a protest of this matter (that I didn't know about ahead of time) I drove both to and from work today on empty. That'll show those bastards who's in control.

jerks.

ya, the crazy thing is that actual gas station owners make less than a penny per gallon, they only make a profit on the snacks and crap we buy in the minimart.
trust me guys i know.

Let me tell you from a little different point of view...my husband being Arab, his people run the gas stations as well as own the oil companies....it's a weird situation. Anyway, it sucks majorly due to the fact that all of his family is reaping the benefits of it costing me $65 dollars to fill up my Honda SUV and we are just getting screwed over. Family schmaly. I guess I should put a big black sheet over my head and move to Saudi Arabia, then I can take all of your guys money and like send it back to you or something. What do you think?
