Gas prices are killing me,
taking so much of my pay;
So I can have just the basics,
like getting to work each day.
Forget about taking a vacation,
or traveling the open sea;
At $3.25 a gallon,
home is where I'll have to be.
Why dos'nt our goverment do something?
like stand up for what is right;
Stop letting the OPEC contries,
Place oil prices out of sight.
Set a price thats fair,
refuse to pay anymore;
If they dont like our price,
their oil they can store.
We need to explore more options,
and look to the future with care;
We need to find alernate energies,
that our planet can bare.
In turn we could tell these nations,
we no longer need you goodbye;
We've found a way to be self supporting,
And your oil we'll no longer buy.
