Right To Be Concerned With Oil Prices
As I read this blog on the high prices of oil, I must say I wasn't overly impressed with the article linked within it. The prevailing rate of gasoline is astonishing! I am in favor of some government intervention in regard to the price of oil we pay. I am not crying any tears for oil companies. They are not going to hurt financially, they just might be required by law to be a little less greedy, but they will still be wealthy! My demand for oil hasn't changed, but my ability to pay for it has. Whether it's turning on the heat, or having the ability to pay for a drive to St. George, my purchasing ability has gone way down because gas is currently $2.50 a gallon! What can I say, I'm out for the common man on this one, I hope that the government steps up and helps out its citizens. And for any that are worried about oil companies' profit ability, there will always be mounds of politicians that will continue to support them because of the incentives they offer through their lobbying and private jets, etc.
