Just In Time For The Holidays
Worried about low gas prices and a mild winter approaching, Big Oil got a shot in the arm today as a single tanker truck of gasoline turned over near Washington D.C..
"Quite frankly this is the best news we have seen since our hearings in Congress," an unreliable, unconfirmed source within Exxon said today. "That single truck is our pipeline to the nation's capital. I don't believe it is unreasonable to think the rest of the nation will have to shoulder a 25 to 50 cents price increase at the pump to offset our loses."
The In A Word Money Team has also heard rumors of Big Oil adopting a occasional semi trailer accident policy throughout the nation to help offset the times when hurricanes and winter weather aren't doing their part to keep production low. More on this story as it develops.
