Have You Noticed?

Gasoline prices are going up again! Of course everyone can't help but notice that, but I've noticed something else. Last year when the gas price skyrocketed, many independents closed. Not only did they have FOR SALE signs up for awhile, but once they did finally close, the tanks were dug up. Those places will not reopen as gas stations. And a number of independent convenience stores that have remained open, no longer sell gas, and their tanks have also been removed. I find it interestingly alarming that while we the people are concerned with the government taking over the auto industry, the gasoline is going to be hard to find. Even if we can still afford it, the stations are getting fewer and farther between. I remember when Candidate Obama went campaigning in other countries and I commented that I thought he wanted to be President of the world. Well, now he's President of America and President of GM, so who knows? Maybe it will be one industry take-over at a time, rather than winning the countries one by one. Really when you think about the grand scheme of it all, America is a relatively recent flash in the pan, and the auto industry even newer, so we average folk may end up back to what worked for thousands of years. We may find ourselves on foot or horseback with the autos and gasoline supply reserved and made available for just the elite few in Washington and the UN, of course.
And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands. a Prophet of Holy Scriptures
