Top 3 Reasons Why You're Paying More At The Pump
Dec 23, 2010 | Views: 1,313
Reason number one why you're paying more at the Pump these days: According to an article in the December 23, 2010 Wall Street Journal, people are driving more again. Now, you silly people, how dare you do that. Just stop all that driving, don't be buying any more of those petroleum fueled vehicles, and gasoline prices will drop like a rock. Oh, wait a minute, if you drive less, and don't buy any more new vehicles, than you'll be accused of hurting the economy. Can't win no how, can you?
Reason number two why you are paying more at the Pump these days: The Chinese manufacturers are using more Oil. See, and you just thought all you had to worry about, as a byproduct of the wholesale shipping of manufacturing operations to China, was the loss of thousands, upon thousands of good paying jobs. But, hey, there is a bright side to this, and that is, at least for once, someone, other than Americans, are being blamed for skyrocketing Oil prices.
Reason number three why you are paying more at the Pump these days: Since the economy is improving, there's all these people going back to work, and relating back to reason number one, they're driving more, because now instead of working at one good paying job, all these newly re-employed workers, are shuttling between two or more low paying, no benefit, "Service Sector" jobs. Hey, now all you recently re-employed folks, stop that, just quit all those jobs, stay home, and before you know it, gasoline will be cheaper than dirt. Of course if you weren't already living in a Shelter, you will be after quitting those jobs it took you years to find. Oh, and for the millions more who haven't been able to find gainful employment in years, you can take solace in knowing that you haven't contributed to the skyrocketing cost of Oil, and consequently, gasoline.
