  • Season brings out honesty, geese

    An unexpected development in this holiday season is the honesty it’s brought out in the big oil companies.
    Unlike in the past when gas prices were tied to natural disasters, which always happened over a holiday season, this year, no excuses were made that I’ve heard about.
    Gas prices were jacked up because: it’s a big travel season; and the oil companies can do it and theres nothing we can do to stop it!
    So, happy holidays!
