    That is all we need with the economy like it is.The oil companies keep reporting record profits,and the working people of America are going broke trying to look for jobs or trying to afford to commute to work.

    Well I think this bites. Why are the prices going up so high so fast??? It's not like we are hurting for the gas/oil, so what gives?? So much for "helping" the economy. How is this helping? It is bad enough alot of people do not have jobs, now it is going to be even harder to look for work because of higher gas prices.....
