    we should stop buying gas from one company like B-P for one week this would cause them to get competitive with there prices its time we start standing up to these nbig gas companies

  4. Bobby says:

    I walk everywhere. I live about 1 mile from the nearest grocery store, drug store, and 3 fast food resturants. Wlaking is good for you. I now only have to fill my gas tank once a month, instead of once a week. So I am saving money and the gas companies are losing.

      It’s a good thing most people aren’t like you. One day something will change, and it may come from someone in this chat room.
      One thing for sure, I know it won’t come from you.

    How’s that Hope and Change thing working out for you?

    1. Helena Jimmy Carter says:

      It’s working great for me. I love Obama. Your problem is you dont want to change and you’re hopeless. You blame Obama because time doesnt stop for you. Even the genius republicans cant change that. If you’re gas costs too much, find a better way like Bobby who started walking to the stores and out to eat. As a bonus you wont be so fat anymore and you might get laid again someday.

        What has Obama done that is great for you? Did I miss something? This country is heading right back into a recession, That must be a record for a president in a single term… Oh yea he helped healthcare, OH wait no he didnt, infact everyone is paying more, Oh thats right he fixed the banks…oooppps I forgot, The banks are not lending money anymore and everyone is paying higher interest!!! WAKE UP, THE GUY IS MAKING THINGS BAD FAST!!!!

        You say that we should walk everywhere, well how about when you go shopping, do you expect the vendors to deliver everything by walking? or maybe the UPS guy should just walk his route, and the home improvement guy can just walk to your house to fix your broken furnace. WE NEED GAS and it NEEDS to be cheaper. If Obama would defund the EPA they will have to back off and let companies drill in USA, then prices will come down. Common Sense

    the hill will be burning funny how they burn there own buildings down that must be whitey’s fault LMFAO!!!

  8. Richard says:

    What made this country so great was to seek opportunity and move where the jobs took us. Without dought this economy is beginning to, no, is feeling the pain of out of control spending. The government is spending more than it takes in and printing money isn’t the answer. Want to know why inflation is taking over, it’s simple, your dollar is loosing value each and every day.
