Trying to boycott big oil is like when you were a little child holding your breath until you turned blue...and then suddenly needed more oxygen...LOL

    You know who starts these gas out e-mails?

    The petroleum comapnies do.

    Think about that one.  

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      They start the whole thing then...?

      I'll give it a shot.....LOL

      They're greasing us?

      We buy extra just incase of a shortage? (That's probably the one).

        Well lets just say we are concerned here in the Bahamas as well gas is $4.60 per gallon. Imagine living here and paying that and our minimum wage is only $175.00.

          Yep

          Everyone runs and fills their gas tanks before the 15th.

          Drain the tanks in the ground dry.

          On the 15th delivery trucks come and put in the summer blend in the tanks that have been drained.

            I can't eat corn because it reminds me of when I dated someone who served in the military.  He was a Colonel.  I tried to butter him up, but he still left me and it was very hard to digest.  For months I stalked him, but sooned learned to say "Aw shucks."  He's no longer in the military.  I heard he moved onto a different field.  Think he might be a musician since he always had a good ear.  I don't know when someone like him will pop up again.

            Was the colonel outstanding in his field ?

              No not really. His comander told him that he was getting to husky, and had to strip him of his duties.

              Now he works as a cobbler. The job was a shoe-in.

                well i will not have to buy gas today because the little gas light in my instrument cluster was blinking to beat the band yesterday. So i had no choise but to buy fuel or run out of gas park the van and walk or catch a cab the twenty or so miles home with the family.

                Did i acomplish anything buy not buying fuel today. I think not as millions of people will be in the same prediciment today as i was yesterday.

Thank you president Bush for not reining in your buddies and sticking it to us instead. Can 2008 please get here as soon as possiable.

                          When I stopped to play my numbers, the 3 gas stations had no one at the pumps and there's always someone buying gas at these stores.
