Oil has to be the most powerful monopoly in our modern world. No matter what you’re doing, whether you’re holding a job or not, you have to have gas to get around this crazy blue sphere we inhabit.
And THEY know it. Of course, I mean the douchebags in suits who run things from offices high in the polluted skies.
They know that with winter comes the frigid cold, which means more engine idling and of course, more gas burnt away. And with the Christmas weekend nipping at our heels comes trip after trip to grocery stores, Wal-mart and relatives’ homes.
And so what do THEY do?
That’s right. They raise the price of gas. Drastically.
Merry Christmas from Big Business, people.
GET USED TO IT PEOPLE!
