These companies are associating the higher gas prices with the relative increase in demand for the summer season, inflation, and situations in the middle east. However, these are fabricated issues to simply monetize as quick as possible with higher prices at the pump. Consumers are becoming more aware of alternative fuel options and crude companies are realizing this. As gas consumers, we need to take a stand against these rising prices.

Again, every Monday starting May 15 2007, no gas is to be purchased. The total estimated costs of this blackout is said to in the billions; So do your part in controlling gas prices, and take a stand.
