This'n'That; April Ninth #3; Your Gas Money

Where Does A $50 Gas Purchase Go?!?
    When we're forced to go inside to pay for a gas purchase, the station operator--likely working for minimum wage--is forced to take the brunt of our ill will. 
It ain't their fault! 
Here's why:
  The primary reason is a non-existant federal--read owe-bama--domestic energy policy, secondarily, the retailer is "suckin' hind tit!"
Your fifty-dollar gas purchase equals:

Crude Oil-          $30.75 (61.5%)
Refining Expense-$7.00  (14.0%)
Delivery Expense-$4.00  ( 8.0%) 
Taxes-                 $6.00  (12.0%)
Credit Card Fees-$1.25  ( 2.5%)
Retailer Profit-  $1.00  ( 2.0%)
What can one take from this chart?!?  A "Clown Prince" stroke-of-the-pen could reduce the price-at-the-pump by 12%!!  Ha!! Fat chance 'a' that!!
'Splain to me again why YOU elected this Arschloch!?!
Til Nex'Time....
