Letter to the Editor

Just a month ago British Petroleum announced that it was going to shut down the Prudhoe Bay oil fields because of leaks in its oil pipelines. Experts were predicting gas prices to rise to above $4.00 a gallon in western states. But with the election just 60 days away all of a sudden there’s plenty of oil and prices are dropping. What an amazing coincidence. Do you think that the oil companies are helping Republicans get elected? Maybe we should have new elections every 6 months of we want to keep oil prices lower.

My advice to voters this election day is, fill your tank before the votes are counted because gas prices might not be as low the day after the election as the day before.
