For the first time in my life I DIDN'T do something this weekend due to gas prices. It's not that I couldn't afford the gas, it's that it pisses me off so damned much I just don't want to USE the gas and then have to buy more sooner.

I'm so livid and enraged about this bullshit, I can't even articulate it. In fact if I continue with this comment like I was planning, it will just degenerate into random cursing so I'll stop right there.

Except for the fact that it's sheer greed that's generating these windfalls and the money to make the huge contributions. They don't HAVE to have record breaking profits every quarter during an "oil shortage" (I'm going to ignore that supply and demand arguement you'll no doubt make because it's a monopoly -- a government supported monopoly, thanks to those huge contributions so therefore the law of supply and demand doesn't apply here in the same way.) and the government can put a stop to it any time they want. But of course they will never want to. Definitely not with Mr. Texas oil money in charge and most likely never with big oil buying off legislators and senators left and right through campaign contributions, either. This is a campaign reform, monopoly and lobbying reform issue and ain't none of those big issues to the people receiving the money, conveniently the people in charge of fixing the problems.

People that are more poor are more hit by the higher gas prices. Sure I can see how you can tell someone, "Hey don't want to pay high gas prices, don't take those unnecessary trips." I don't think the working poor drive SUVS (least last time I was on the highway, I didn't see any).

Poor people don't have that luxury. Never mind the cost of energy to either cool or heat your home (again the middle class and poor will be more affected than the richy rich.
