We’re being gouged at the gas pumps

Why are these big gas companies being allowed to charge such high gas prices when the price of a barrel of oil is down to $47 per barrel?

Why are these big gas companies being allowed to charge such high gas prices when the price of a barrel of oil is down to $47 per barrel? In 2005 oil was at $50 per barrel and the price of gas at the pump was 82 cents per litre. Now oil is at $47 per barrel but the price of gas at the pump is still a whopping $1.24 per litre. That’s 42 cents a litre we are being gouged for and our useless government does nothing because the higher the price the more tax we pay.

Are you as sick of feeding the big oil executives as I am? It’s about time our newspapers and media started doing their jobs and report on this travesty. Is there an organization doing something about this that we can join forces with and get some results?
