Forget Road Rage. Thanks To Team Obama, Now It’s “GAS Rage!”

gas prices 493

Coming to a service station near you:

BROCKTON, MA — An infuriated gas customer called police to complain about high gas prices from a Warren Avenue gas station on Wednesday night.  Officers responded to Prestige Gas at 761 Warren Ave. after receiving a 911 call at 8:10 p.m. from a man upset at the price of gas.

The man, who was not identified, “couldn’t believe super (unleaded) was $4.13 a gallon and he only got 6 gallons for $25,” police logs show.

Store clerk Sherry Lincoln said the man paid $25 in cash, pumped his gas, then came back into the store “yelling and screaming in front of the customers.”

“He said that he wanted his money back, that he didn’t get $25 in gas,” Lincoln said.

“I’m like, ‘Why are you so mad?’” she added.

The man, who bought premium unleaded, kept insisting that he didn’t pump $25 in gas, Lincoln said.

“He was very mad, very very mad,” Lincoln said.

If he’s mad now, wait until his future congressman, Joe P. Kennedy III solves the problem of “cheap oil.”

Massachusetts, where we vote for John “No Drilling” Kerry, Barack “Energy Prices Skyrocket” Obama and Joe “No To Cheap Oil” Kennedy…then call the cops when gas hits $4.13 a gallon.

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
