    Another ugly result of hope and change. Stupid democrats, leadership is for grownups.

      Democrats and Republicans, they are both the same…corrupt and hungry for money and power. Doesn’t matter who is in office, republican or democrat, unless there is some serious improvement done, I will not put faith in any of them. They seem to forget that they do NOT represent their party, they represent the United States of America!

    You just want attention Jessica….As for the gas prices, F! the corrupt oil companies cutting our throats behind our backs!

    Gas increase goes hand in wih our daily influx of foreigners.Why do you think our goverment is intentionally enticing mexico to colonize this nation?

  4. Corrupt US Government says:

    High Gas prices is a result of Political Corruption. US Government is a Corrupt bunch.

    If Unocal 76 Sold to China a few years ago, we won’t have this problem. China offered $20 Billions, Chevron bid was $18 Billions. And the US Congress blocked the Sale to China and awarded the Bid to a lower offer, Chevron.

    If China won the bid, there could be a bunch of 99 Cents or Dollar Tree Gas Stations in the USA.

    Thank your US Government for the Corruption.
