    You can help bring down the price of gasoline with out any effort if we stand together. A barrel of oil is 42 gallon, but only about 25 % is made into gasoline. There are hundreds of products made from oil. The oil corporations get more per gallon for some products than a barrel of oil cost. They don’t have to change prices of gasoline every day, no matter what OPEC does. Just an excuse to rip you off and mess up the economy.The oil corporations are to blame for high gasoline prices. These collectives monopolies fix prices which is a violation of the law. A collective monopoly is one in which 10 or fewer corporations control over 90 % of a good or service in one industry.

    You can help with little or no effort by buying your gasoline across the street or down the road-just pass up Exxon-Mobil. We can bloody this giants’ nose ; the rest will get the message. Target the giant.

    Help build a People Power Price Control organization. We don’t have to take it. Send five dollar to People Power Price Control 2201 Southern Shade Blvd. Knoxville Tennessee 37932. Every penny will be used to get the message out. Send this message out by any means possible.You can help control prices of these collective monopolies. There are three we can easily target: big oil, big supermarkets, and big banks. They are the three ripping us off with a price marker and calling it inflation which is an euphemism for theft. Ask your friends to visit the Internet Free Press and send the message to your friends and family and the News Media.

    Small businesses have to compete; the collective monopolies fix prices on top of the bridge. They don’t even have to get under the bridge. Next day gasoline prices are post on the internet every day for the next day price changes.They all change in lock-step. Send this article out to as many people as you can, and ask them to visit the Internet Free Press for the targets of People Power Price Control.

    Two hypotheses, not mulltauy exclusive.1. Speculators, buying into the media line on the economy, are buying oil in anticipation of a demand increase.2. Investors, afraid of future inflation, are converting money into real assets, including oil.
