A Preview of AFRICOM?

Gas Prices – Complain, Restrain, and Sustain - May 2007
There are a couple of plans floating around the Internet to counteract this new form of “highway robbery.” One plan says we should not pump gas on May 15th. Question: What difference does it make if the gas thieves get our money on the 14th the 15th or the 16th of the month? So we skip a day, then what? Back to business as usual?
