    Hello:
    I was listening to the radio this morning and they mentioned that an Orlando gas station was now charging $5.39 per gallon of gas. I think it's time to start collecting the Billions of dollars spent in Iraq. We need to take payment in form of free oil. After all we did for Iraq, we have never taken one gallon of oil from them, nor have they offered any free oil to us.

    They recently have had the audacity to ask the US government that we pay them one million dollars that they feel that we owe them? Let's face it, the world hates us. Let's give the world a real reason to hate us. We can no longer afford to be the peace keepers of the world, and help every country that has problems. Do you agree? Enough is enough, we need to think of ourselves once and for all.

    That place resembles the one in Morton, Il that raised their prices to $5.99 the afternoon of 9-11-01. The car dealership, that filled their cars there, said they were also singing, dancing and laughing behind the counter as well. They also stopped trading with them.

    Pressure congress to change the laws to allow drilling for oil in ALL states and offshore. Several million additional barrels of oil a day will do wonders...

    How is he ripping people off when they are free to go to other stations to purchase their fuel? I doubt that he has the only gas station in town.

    Since President Carter was in office I have been hearing how we need to be self sufficient in producing our own oil. Every time we want to drill we are met by protesters. The middle class is on it's way to being eradicated. None of the responders to this thread have mentioned one thing about taking free oil as repayment from Iraq, How come?

    Because it's a pipe dream: Iraq doesn't feel that they owe us anything. You wanna start a war to take it?

    I have 500 bags of Lawrence and West Coast magnum shot (7.5 & 8) for sale.

    Buyer must take all 500 and must be picked up at my residence.

    $100 per bag...cash only.

    What I heard was this $5.39 station is the last one going to the airport, so any rental cars would be filled back up there before returning the rental.

    I'm with Recurvy on this one about taking care of yourself. The only problem is there isn't enough "Game" to feed everyone unless we all start eating possum and snakes. And Steve is 100% Right also ..OIL for payback!!! IRAQ!, 3 Billlion a week, 52 week's a year, six years + or -. If we gave every state in the country 3 billion a year (50 states)for road repair and bridge work, and other public services for the past 5 + year's every road and bridge in every state would be new! Think of how good the economy would be then!!!

    Thank's, Mike

    The network news showed a gas station in Florida charging $5.39/gal. Probably the one mentioned here. It was run by ragheads (of course).
