Time To Send A Message To Exxon

Even though the price of crude oil is at near-record prices, the cost of gasoline has been falling. Experts say this apparent contradiction is because refineries that were down earlier this year due to maintenance or--in some cases--flooding, are now back online and functioning at capacity.

So where are all the pontificating politicians who emerge from the woodwork whenever gas prices are spiking? Why aren't they out there hunting down camera crews and dramatically calling for investigations of price fixing?

I for one am sick and tired of Big Oil taking advantage of the ample supplies of gasoline to unfairly lower prices. I propose that on Thursday, August 9, we show our disgust with the current state of affairs by unnecessarily driving around and filling up our tanks.

Please pass this along to your friends.
