Oil companies tank economy


It is so sad with the economy the way it is today, and with so many people out of work, that gas prices just keep going up and up and up.

It will force people to stay home instead of taking well-deserved vacations that they so desperately need, or be able to go out and find the jobs to cover their living expenses.

To me, it is the greed of our oil companies that make this such a bad situation that we are all in at this time. I wish they had more compassion to help the people around the world deal with the economic problems, instead of making them worse by raising the gas prices so out of proportion.
