Highway Robbery

Meanwhile, back on the ranch, the real gangsters are still getting away with murder and highway robbery. There is no reason for another spike in gas prices at the pump. None whatsoever. Other than the fact that the oil companies are exploiting the fact that they have a monopoly and are continuing to gouge consumers. It's at 1.48 a litre now not 1.46.

There is nothing worse than a private corporation with a monopoly. That is not a free market system. When you give a private oil company or a privatized energy company an exclusive monopoly, greed takes over and consumes everything. It destroys the free market system. Didn’t Mexico make their oil company public? A public oil company who’s profits add to the tax revenue and thereby reduce taxes for the general public. Now that’s what I’m talking about.
