They Screw Up and We’re Supposed to Pay???

Sep 27, 2010

In early September, gas prices went up more than 16 cents a gallon in Metro Detroit!

The company responsible for that increase is Enbridge Energy Partners, the world’s largest crude-oil pipeline company.

Enbridge is also responsible for three major pipeline ruptures: near Battle Creek Michigan, in suburban Chicago, and in Ontario Canada. And not a single government authority moved to block the gasoline price increase.

It’s just the ordinary workings of capitalism–they screw up, we’re supposed to pay.

Forget that!
