Reflections at the Pump

You're at the gas pump. The price per gallon today is higher than yesterday's which was higher than the day before. You're aware that daily price jumps are caused by commodity traders who use high-powered computers to buy petroleum futures and hold them for huge profits. These commodity traders don't explore, find, produce, or deliver a drop of product, they create few jobs, yet they pocket millions of dollars each year and substantially add to the cost of your gasoline. They pay a lower percentage of income tax than you do. Romney and Ryan think these rich vultures deserve to pay even lower taxes.
