Who’s to blame?

August 7, 2012
The Mining Journal

To the Journal editor:

This past Wednesday morning, a friend and I left for town from our homes in Harvey at about 9:15 a.m. We noted and remarked that gas prices were still at the high end of $4.++ per gallon. Three hours later on our way home we again noted that Gas prices now were nearly 20-cents per gallon higher. These kinds of outrageous price jumps seem to have become the norm; and quite frankly I do not give a rip whose fault it is.

Mr. Whippen says we cannot hold the present administration to account, and that would seem to indicate that we, (the people) cannot blame previous administrations to blame either. I cannot imagine that some government agency cannot be held responsible, and after more than 20 years of this outrageous pricing behavior, that none of them has at least launched some sort of investigation.

I am currently driving less than 5,000 miles per year and though I know that the ever increasing cost of everything is mostly caused by the government printing more and evermore dollars, thus driving up the inflation rate. I am really weary of being their pawn.
