      i'm just wondering.... didn't gas prices go up when Bush was in office? Wasn't gas already at 4 dollars a gallon? It seems strange to me that everytime a BUSH gets in to ofice our country gets targeted. The ecomony was already in a recession when OBAMA won office. That's why despite a degree I had to get two jobs.

        I don't think politics has anything to do with someone stealing. It's a freeby and that's all there is to it until they get caught.

    Sign of the times...This is a new low. There can't be any more than like $50 bucks in those machines. Not even worth it.
