One easy step to cheaper gas

With production reduced due to Katrina, already steep oil and gas prices are expected to rise. Since oil prices are set in the global market, and the faux US energy policy is to do little beyond giving tax-breaks to already wealthy energy companies, what can we, as Americans, do?

Drive less, use less gas. That's it.

From Bloomberg:

Sept. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Crude oil fell and gasoline plunged to a one-month low on signs that record fuel prices are slowing growth in global energy demand...

Demand for gasoline declined 4.3 percent to 8.6 million barrels a day last week, the U.S. Energy Department said Sept. 14. The fall coincided with the Labor Day holiday when vacationers usually take to the highways. Gasoline consumption peaks during the driving season, which runs from Memorial Day in late May to Labor Day.

It truly is that simple. If you, I, and our fellow Americans use less gas, not only will we be buying fewer gallons of gas, but the cost per gallon will also go down as well. We, as a collection of individuals, can do what the BushCorp™ controlled government has admitted is beyond its powers: reduce the price of gas.

And, as you board the Goldline, or do your grocery shopping in one trip instead of five, know this, not only are you saving money, you are saving money for your fellow citizens and you are also reducing America's dependence on some of the worst regimes in the world.

Feels good don't it?
