Gas Prices Another Attack on America

Am I the only one who sees these gas prices being another attack on America. I started thinking of who its starting to really cripple not just the American economy but affect us on a personal level which is the fabric of American family living. Isn't what's happening now what they try to do with the attacks on the World Trade Center. Start a down spiral of our way of living.

Whats really happening to America with gas prices. Companies laying off workers by the thousands, selling of American goods, and companies leaving the country in favor of cheaper labor, while all the mean while selling off parts of our economy to other countries to off set the lost. All in all fighting a war else where of which controls a large portion of gas in the world.

Well, some of the Americans are the one's doing this so called "attack" on the rest of the society and the majority is responsible for electing them to that position.
A perfect example is Mexico. They produce their own oil from their own land that belongs to the people.
They made a law banning export of oil or products of it.
Because of that the price of diesel is $2.09 a gall and the gas is $2.75.
Being government owned for the people and by the people they do not chase a profit and serve the people as best as they can. (With fuel). But they have plenty of other shortcomings.
