From Dawn Smith

So here we go again! Gas prices are up again and we, the consumers, are supposed to take it with a smile.

It’s not like we aren’t aware that they have gasoline in reserve and that the oil companies are just using this as an excuse to exceed their oil profits and make millions, even billions, on us. Enough is enough. Our politicians in Charleston better step in and give us help instead of seeing that their buddies are profiting from our already empty wallets.

I’m personally tired of the oil companies taking from us and having not even our local authorities help us. Look at Chesapeake,

I live in the country and they have trashed our roads, made our property values sink, run all hours of the day and night, and block our roads because they can’t read a simple road sign telling them that large trucks can’t make it up our hill. I live in the country to avoid the noise and distractions but all I get done is putting up with crap.

I don’t live in a third world country, so why do the ones in charge allow tax payers to be treated like we are?

Stop! Give us back our voice and do what you were sworn to do and protect our rights!
