Just my for what little they count...

They have gas. You need gas. Selling the gas is their business. If you found out the manager at the only store in town was buying crack with his paycheck, would you starve yourself or complain about the price of groceries, using his money as your arguement? Probably not. What the hell do you care what they do with their profit? People in England are paying the equivelant of 7.10/gal for gas, and we are whining because we have to pay $2.29 a galon? poor poor poor us... I think I'll go buy a violin and sit on the roof of my house playing sad music and singing about fuel. You have no idea how fortunate you are that 2.29 is ALL we are paying. Get over it already.

that was supposed to be a joke, you have a very good point, one that I didnt look over in my own opinion of the matter, none the less, I thought it would be ironic/funny if I titled it that seeing as though there was a previous post about it...

Sorry bro... not one single bit of that was directed toward you. It's just the way I phrase things when I am trying to make a point... they always appear to attack people, but thats never the intent. I think its my usage of the words I, you, they...exc.

Amen to ZX
If they want to buy bad ass cars with their money that their buisness. Hell, if they buy american cars, the money is coming back to us.
Much better use for it than supporting suicide bombers around the world.

Selling gas is their business. This isn't the point, the point is that in tragic times like hurricanes and such, these companies OVER inflate their prices, and make record profits again and again.

For example, let's say I own MedStar. My Ambulance rate if $100/hr. That is until you have a problem and call 911, at which time I decide you really "need' my services, so I decide to double it. When I find out you have no insurance, I double that again. My profits are way up. but you shouldn't worry yourself about it, cause I didn't do anything wrong, I have an ambulance, and you need one.
