As a past employee of a major oil company, I am outraged by the current SCREWING they are doing to the American public. It's ATROCIOUS. And our president is unwilling to stop his oil buddies. In the last two days, the oil company has jacked up the prices from .10 to .50 cents a gallon for product ALREADY PAID FOR AND IN THE GROUND at your local filling station. Check the stock market reports, all the oil companies are posting RECORD profits right now. And they are crying poor. LIES! OUTRIGHT LIES. Yes, they will incur costs to repair the damage from Katrina, I agree. BUT, why pre-charge us? It's incredible. The oil prices from the middle East are rising. That is for oil ready to be pumped up from the ground halfway around the world. Again, they are gouging us NOW for fully refined product already in thier overflowing tanks at thier refineries. Don't beleive me? Ask anyone else who has experience. Wonder why you don't hear much from them? The're keeping very quiet right now.... I'm ****ed. Thanks for letting me vent!
