Lower Gas Prices in the U.S.A
Petition Background (Preamble):
Has anyone noticed that a gallon of unleaded gas is almost as much money as a gallon of milk? Why is that?
People are enraged at the inflation of the gas prices. Parents who need to drive their children to soccer games or baseball games can't anymore, causing their child to miss out due to this rise in gas prices.
Our country has basically invaded a land with high amounts of oil in it, then why do our gas prices rise and rise??? Pretty soon unleaded gasoline is going to cost us around four dollars a gallon if we do not act fast...
Research studies want us to believe things like this,
"Gasoline may seem expensive, but a recent study by the research firm John S. Herold puts gasoline prices in perspective. The study points out, for example, that a popular soft drink sells for the equivalent of about $2.85 a gallon, and a brand name beer about $9.75 a gallon and Visine eye medication about $895 a gallon."
This just wants people to stop wining about gas prices... Who's gonna buy Visine eye medicine by the gallon? Or mouth wash? or prepared coffee? Sure when gas prices by the gallon are compared to these things it makes it seem like gas prices are low but you don't need $40.00 worth of Visine to fill up your car tank do you? No! It's different for gas.
You don't stop every couple of days to fill up on another 20 gallons of Soda, or Beer.....
We want to stop this horrible inflation before it costs us nearly four dollars for unleaded gasoline...
