Strangled at the Gas Pump...

Below is part of a press release I thought you might enjoy. You can see the decal to which they refer in the original article by clicking here. Today they state the problem; tomorrow's installment will cover their proposal to address the problem.

Reaching Washington politicians with a message should be easy. But it’s not – particularly if you’re trying to bring about a fundamental change in the American energy marketplace. The public is not up in arms about high gas prices the way they should be. Despite high gas pump prices, the public is not getting in the face of politicians that are in Big Oil’s pocket. So we made it easy. 31 seconds to rub on a decal.

Rancho Mirage, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2005 -- Gasoline prices are up and still soaring. If you’re looking for a reason, just take out your wallet. Blame those wrinkled papers with pictures of presidents on them – if you have many of them left. So what's the price of gas got to do with the shrinking Yankee dollar? Everything.

Your elected politicians will offer “cover-up” platitudes and stuff the public with phony rationalizations. Demand is up. Refineries are switching from winter blend to summer blend. Etc., etc. If you buy that, you’ll believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Here’s the real deal. In the worldwide marketplace, the dollar is being hammered and has taken an embarrassing crap because of political games with the budget, billions dollars per month war spent on Iraq with no end in sight, growing government waste, pork barrel politics and a totally out-of-control deficit spending right here in the USA.

America's credit is plummeting – along with its respect by other countries. Everything is going to cost more. Just wait. The $75 a barrel price and $3 per gallon prices are just down the road.

With certainty, as the dollar goes down in value, the foreign oil cartels who control most supplies want more dollars to compensate themselves for their “dip” in windfall profits.

In the meantime, China is building up its industrial complex. And without a war to divert its cash, that nation is on a revolutionary roll. India as well.

With their new found prosperity at America’s expense, they’re cranking out cars and buying more oil, too.

Welcome to the new world of competition for foreign oil that America never had to deal with. But when the price of gasoline goes up, it attracts a whole hell of a lot of attention. But we are still fed the same kind of political lip service we were fed when the Arabs embargoed oil in the70’s, when gasoline lines stretched for miles around stations across the country and even when terrorists struck the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, by terrorists financed by America haters flush with oil profits.
