Free gas day! Wouldn't it be a wonderful thing for governments to throw us a bone? One day a year, one day out of the 365 days in the year, all gas stations would be obligated to open their fuel to everyone who shows up with a tank to be filled. The free gas would make us all happy, but more than that, we would feel comforted in the knowlege that our government cares for its people. We would be assured that our government knows our struggles and wants to help. Am I dreaming an impossible dream?

Who would pay for it? The gas station owner, not our dear sweet kindly government. Let's say the maga stations like Super America, or Cheveron decided like give all our customers a break today. You'd still be required to pay for the TAXES on the free gas. Sorry there is no free lunch day. It would be a HUGE holiday if our representitatives stood up on their hind legs and forced the oil companies to roll back prices to a level where the oil companies aren't making obscene profits!

Robert Heinlein day! A day set aside where we all treated each other according to the tenets he set forth in: Stranger in a Strange Land
