Conspiracy Theories

SCARY: That I am so excited about gas prices being below three dollars that I would take a picture and post it here. I mean, seriously, since when is this a reasonable price for gas?

SCARIER: It dropped ten more cents after I took this picture and is now $2.89, scratch that... another day and it's $2.79.

SCARIEST: What if this is all a trick? A scam? A charade? Just before the election, those shadow men who control the prices (how else do you explain this madness?!) have manipulated the system, lowering the price of gas to provide a false sense of contentment and financial stability even while the banks collapse around us, so that we are not afraid to commit to four more years of Republican rule. Stranger things have happened.

Now just so we're clear and you don't think I'm a nut... I believe we really did land on the moon, I believe that Elvis has met his maker, and Oswald did not act alone (wait - how was I supposed to vote on that last one to be considered normal?)

... but this? This is Spooky.

The truth is out there.

I don't think you are at all paranoid to think that there are political motives using gas prices as theatrical puppets. Of COURSE they are! Who do the oil industries want in office? It's obvious they'll do all they can to keep their favorite enablers in the White House. Or perhaps another way to look at it, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you! And lastly, I don't know about the Oswald one.
