Move somewhere else if you like costly gas

Atascadero

Bob Brimmer

This latest spike in gas prices is an act of greed by the oil companies. They want gas to be $5 per gallon, and they will ease it up and than down and up again until they get what they want. It's a game with them, and they are getting away with it.

What will be next? The weather gets too cold and they will need to shut down the refineries, causing another spike in gas prices.

There is no reason that gas should be more than $1.50 per gallon. All greed. And for the people who think we have it good as foreign countries are paying over $7 per gallon, this is America and we don't need to be like them. If you like paying $7 per gallon, then I suggest you move to a foreign country.
