Hopefully they get the refinery fixed in SoCal so they can stop the laws of supply and demand from screwing you over more. I've heard stories that rationing has occurred at certain stations as well
Just filled up @$3.49 here in FL

If you've heard a repeated a lie about the wealthy long enough, you might start to believe it.
Take Google and Facebook ---- very liberal work cultures ----- and I would like to see how they were built off of the efforts and/or backs of blacks and how these groups were exploited to make white people rich. Pretty sure both were a couple of nerds at a university who had one really good idea for the internet. But, of course it's okay for liberals to become multi-billionaires, but not conservatives.

Class warfare.... or group warfare. It's been used time and time again in the past across the world- the populace is upset, the economy sucks, so make a group of people a scapegoat and "lay it on". The problem here is that the scapegoat is essential to the nation's economy.

50 years ago we were told to aspire to be like the rich and make smart decisions allowing us to become part of the class. Today we're told getting into the class is unattainable and they should pay more because it's unfair. Yet at the same time many years ago people drove modest cars and saved up 20% before buying a home. Today people with nothing still expect all of the save items, even with nothing to their name. Even worse is they want it bigger and better..

But I strongly agree that we should plan on doing for ourselves, and not hoping the government will do things for us.

Imagine working at mcdonalds and providing a future for yourself.
Oh yeah better hope you dont have any financial disaster EVER and you better hope your health stays great until 65-70 where you retire and struggle to afford everything in your daily life so you can "not let someone else take care of you"
Im sure the canned response will be "well anyone who works at mcdonalds and doesnt ascend to higher positions deserves to struggle"

I don't have stats and numbers that I can point too.
Just consider it an educated opinion, based on real world observations.

There will always be groups & individuals who profit off the misperceptions of others.
