This sickens me...Too many families out there busting their butts to make a living to give their hard earned money to these companies.
Anon, I respectfully disagree with you. We have laws against price gouging for a reason. We rely on them as suppliers and they are turning around, marking up their product to a ridiculous amount and we are supposed to bend over and take it - just so they can be successful and make a profit? Retailers cannot charge $1500 for a $400 generator to hurricane victims; that's the law. Same should be applied here to gas prices.

TRUE! And other things......its not just language. It is attitude,too. Look inside yourself.
LMFAO!! YOU are telling ME to look inside myself?! Are you effin kidding me?! You are THE biggest hypocrite of them all!! Is that enough F-bombs for your prudish self?! LOL :o)
I find it HILARIOUS that you think you know me, based on having never seen (except when I posted my facebook avatar at YOUR request, then you suddenly disappeared assuming I was some old, bitter, hag!!) or met me in person--just based on what I write!!
You're funny for a septuagenarian!! :o)

I just saw on the news that Exxon's quarterly profit was 69%. SIXTY-NINE PERCENT!!! That's unacceptable. So many people are not putting food on their tables because they have to fill up their tanks to get to work. I have to put $20 more per tank in my car compared to when I bought it in '09. I'm straight up pissed about it all.

Here we go again. Companies (all of them) are evil. Forget that the PBO administration won't allow these companies to tap our natural resources and bring down prices, BUT he will subsidize the drilling in Brazil and promise to be a good customer. The oil companies aren't the problem. The gov't regulations and the EPA are the problem. As long as you listen to PBO and direct your anger at the oil companies, PBO has accomplished what he wanted. Prices stay high, you demand the companies do something, and you don't turn towards him and demand HE do something. Think people - think. We use to have cheap gas. The oil companies made money. What changed? Not the oil companies but the regulations and the EPA got involved with the newly formed Dept. of Energy.
