Joe you are absolutely correct. Our country is based on capitalism which is based on economics which is based on "supply and demand". People who look for the government to save the day are misguided regarding government's purpose. I pay waaaay more in taxes than on gasoline. Who is going to save me from that!? What about greedy government "profits" which are even higher than oil and gas profits?
