Time to act is now.

Don’t get me wrong. This is both good and bad news.

It’s good news because BP is being proactive and shutting the line before it becomes an environmental disaster.

It’s bad news because the price of gasoline is supposed to jump between 3 and 5 cents a gallon.

What am I pissed about, then?

Record profits, people. Gas prices are going to rise, as is oil prices, and the rich keep getting richer. You’ve got companies who are continuing to turn in record profits, and who will no doubt be reaping the profits from this “glitch”.

Instead of just apologizing for the inconvenience, big oil, why don’t you put your money where your mouth is an return some of those ill-gotten profits to the poor consumer that you’re continuing to gouge?
