Re: Hate gas prices? Torch the car!

I applaud the man. I would do the same thing if I had to pay close to $10 a gallon. Thats just crazy. It's funny that the only thing they can charge him with is violating some Enviromental Law.

I filled up my car today, cost was 1.20 per Litre, X 4.5 = Gallon = $10 + a little,

you are welcome to come over and torch my car for me, but it needs to be done outside 10 Downing Street, or on some MP's front lawn.

The guy is a MORON!! He hasn't made any point, everyone already knows that gas prices are high.

He now faces prison time and fines.

The smart move would have been to SELL the car and use the money take the bus

Maybe you could organize all the truck drivers to pace the M25 at 5 mph and cut off all access to London as a protest of the high fuel prices. Oh wait, the M25 is already stuck at 5 mph and besides, that protest didn't seem to work so well when petrol hit 0.80 per Litre a few years back.

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
