Dear Editor:

I was wondering why our elected officials are letting the oil companies and oil traders rip us off again. They are saying that the trouble in Libya is the reason gas prices are going up but the truth is Libya isn't even one of the top 15 countries that we import oil from.

How can a country that sends us so little oil have this effect on gas prices. Just wait until the quarterly oil company profits come out they will blow your mind.
