Merry Christmas from the Oil Companies. NOT!

Rusty abandoned gas pumps. Claiborne Avenue, N...If only THIS became a reality!

As The Hook watches the seemingly endless stream of F-150s, Hummers and other gas guzzlers zip in and out of his hotel, one thought reigns supreme – “Boy, are we getting screwed by big business!”

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.



About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.

    Yeah we really are just too reliant on oil for everything. Gas prices are really something.
