Oil Companies Taking Advantage of Misery

To the editor:

I have been hearing a great deal about the low-life scum scamming people via the Internet by encouraging them to send money to relieve the suffering of the people who were in the wake of hurricane Katrina. These people are low-life indeed. What I don't hear is why the Gas and Oil companies can instantly raise prices. As far as I am concerned they are taking advantage of human misery in exactly the same way that the scammers are.

The citizens of North America have donated fifty plus million dollars to the disaster. Can anyone tell me what the gas (13% increase) and oil (20%
increase) companies are donating to this horrific event? As far as I am concerned, these corporate bodies are scamming its customers in no less of a low-life manner as the Internet scammers. The only difference is one of the scams is legal, the other one is not.
