Folks, if we as HVAC contractors did the same stuff that the oil cartels and
oil companies are doing, we would *all*
be in jail. The oil companies tried
doing the same thing in the early 70's. It got to a point where all the
professional drivers parked their trucks for a week, and it got the
country's attention. I personally feel like history is about to repeat
itself. Keep in mind that the full effect is not felt very much at all by
the folks in the big cities, but for those of us in rural communities, there
is a major impact. Maybe....just maybe.... if the right words reach the
right people, something will be done about the price of oil and fuels.
I have been sending the following text in e-mail to all of the elected
officials I can find good addresses for;
Wanna get re-elected??
Don't count on my vote or the votes of anybody who will listen to me unless
you and the rest of the nice folks in the government can reign in the oil
companies and their price gouging. The price of fuels have increased 25% in
the last year and more than doubled in the last 5 years. The oil companies
record profits, and the ranking members of the oil cartel are listed among
the wealthiest men in the world. The rich keep getting richer, and the poor
keep getting poorer. John Q Public can't afford to put fuel in their
vehicles any more let alone put groceries on the table. The prices of goods
and service have gone up along with the price oil and fuels, but wages have
This depression(not recession), is putting hundreds of small businesses and
sole propriatorships out of business every day and further burdening the
economy with the loss of even more jobs.
You have the power, now are you going to do something about it?? or are you
going to leave it up to the next person that takes your job??
The congress, the senate and the president can come together on a sunday for
an emergency session for Terri Schaivo, What are they doing for the benifit
of the entire country in oil price relief, and the economy??? How long can
this go on?? how high will the prices of oil/fuels go before we say
ENOUGH!!!. Will the country have to go into another full blown depression
such as hasn't been seen since the 30's?? I don't have the answers...only
Let your elected officials, and newspapers know how *you*
feel about the oil
companies, and cartels price gouging/collusion.
If you folks think I am off base here, then tell me what you think.
