KingCast, NPR and Joe Piscopo say "Obama got Osama but what does that have to do with the price of petrol in Boston?"
Here you go. That $4.35 was in CT last week, here in Boston it was $4.19.9 3 days ago and now $4.21.9. Listen to the NPR feature now they say it could hit $6.00 this summer. Folks at the CVS store last night and down at the corner store this morning all agreed with me, yah shoor one less point of evil in the World provided they really have him now but how does this directly affect me? And did 9/11 REALLY happen the way they say it did?
Anyway, of course I document this periodically, at least comedian Mark Demayo made us laugh about it five years ago when they put the stick to us. And keep in mind that the "uncertainty" element discussed in the article is kind of bullshit -- things have been rather "uncertain" in the Middle East for several months now, right. And with Osama dead that should inure to our benefit, at the pumps then, right? A shekel here, a shekel there, right? Not. I suspect that heightened unrest is part of the reason, but the more prevailing reason is scumbag oil company corporate greed during the high volume summer months, natch. BTW ain't it funny that they allegedly shot and killed Osama on May Day? Does anyone else see a coincidence in that?
