Some news outlets are predicting that gasoline prices will increase this spring to near $4/gallon. Remember in the years before Bush/Cheney when we paid less than $2/gallon. The millionaires that we’ll be voting for next year don’t really care that gasoline costs have doubled. Fifty, sixty, seventy or even a hundred dollars to fill your tank doesn’t matter to folks who have money to burn. It matters to the poor and low income who have to make decisions about health care, food or fuel. Where I live gasoline is $3.29/gallon. Surrounding areas where more affluent people live the price is generally lower. I’ve noticed in the past several years that there seems to be a conscious effort to victimize the poor. It seems that merchants in Franklinville, New York, especially those that sell gasoline, are programmed to victimize the poor.
He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.–Prov. 14:31
