Let the profiteering continue ....
Did you ever stop to wonder why every time there is a new excuse to raise gas prices, within hours of an announcement the oil companies raise the price at the pump of gas that was refined and delivered to your local gas station several days ago?
What a ripoff! This hurricane had no magical retroactive effect on the price of crude oil or the ability of the refineries in the south to operate back when the gas for sale today at your local station got produced and delivered. There is no legitimate reason to raise the price of the gas that is sitting in the tanks at local gas station right now!
It's all a huge scam! They are all greedy, rotten, thieving bas***ds, including our President and his Crawford Mafia! If you honestly believe that Bush and his goons are not getting rich from all of this you are sadly mistaken!
Maybe he can award Halburton a no bid contract to clean up the Katrina mess, so he can get even richer off of the kickback money he gets from them!
