You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Bickering About Gas Prices

I’m not one to get on my soapbox, but it’s time.
THESE GAS PRICES ARE RIDICULOUS.
Between September 2006 and September 2007 I spent $3,300 on gas money at 141 gas stations across the country. My trip average during that time came to just $2.63 per gallon, and I thought that was expensive.
Only six months after finishing my trip gas prices are already $1.00 more expensive than the average of my trip. I remember being shocked on my trip the first and only time I paid $3.60. Now I drive in East Lansing and see $3.75 and $3.79.
Exxon Mobil, the country's largest oil company, reported that its 2007 profit hit $40.6 billion, a 3 percent increase from 2006, while sales passed $404 billion. No American business has ever scored a higher profit.
Americans are being stabbed in the back by oil companies and a government that is supporting the oil companies. The economy is in shambles and the oil companies are at the root of most of it. A $600 stimulus check is going to help the economy.
