Senior Drivers: Be Prepared For Annual Gas Pump Robbery PDF Print E-mail

Remember the good old days when gas cost a buck a gallon? In advance of the upcoming holiday season, by early October the international cartel thieves were already setting the trap. Billionaire Saudi Arabian oil shrieks recently cried out that they can’t prevent the price of oil from going up to $100 a barrel. Oh, the humanity!

That means the already grossly inflated price of $5 a gallon of gas will go even higher in final months of the year. Just in time for your Thanksgiving drive to grandma’s and then Christmas shopping. Have pity and pay the outrageous robberies, because those heartbroken oil cartel billionaires and their U.S. stooges have crocodile tears streaming down their burkas! Or, better still, do less driving until the robbery prices go lower again.
