Pray for Lower Gas Prices

The San Francisco newspaper reports:

Rocky Twyman has a radical solution for surging gasoline prices: prayer.

Twyman – a community organizer, church choir director and public relations consultant from the Washington, D.C., suburbs – staged a pray-in at a San Francisco Chevron station on Friday, asking God for cheaper gas. He did the same thing in the nation’s Capitol on Wednesday, with volunteers from a soup kitchen joining in. Today he will lead members of an Oakland church in prayer.

Heck, why not sacrifice a goat and throw salt over your shoulder too?

    I took the blurb and linked story and ran with it over at my blog, but one thing that gets my goat is that this whole thing is supposedly because the price of gasoline, and it’s recent meteoric rise. However, if Twyman wanted to make some real impact, maybe he should talk with Gordon Brown to have him work more closely with the strikers at Grangemouth. I mean, due to the strike, the price of gas has increased past £5 per gallon (roughly $10/gallon)! If there isn’t a strong argument for a cause-and-effect relationship between a human action (union strike) and the price of a human-manufactured commodity (petroleum), I don’t know what is.

    I blather on about other things, but that’s one thing that really did get my goat. (And I was saving it to use the next time I went flying!)
