An interesting solution to gas prices…

Some folks have decided that prayer is the only answer to high gas prices. From the Washington Post:

The price of regular at a Shell gas station in Petworth gleamed defiantly in the midday sun: $3.91 a gallon.

But unlike the customers rolling up to the station’s pumps this week, resigned to the fact that their wallets were about to take a beating, Rocky Twyman and company had a plan to bring that number tumbling down.

They would ask God to do it.

“Our pockets are empty, but we’re going to hold on to God!” Twyman, a community organizer from Rockville, said as he and seven other people formed a semicircle, held hands and sang, pleading for divine intervention to lower fuel prices.

It was the latest demonstration by Twyman’s movement, Pray at the Pump, which began in April. Since then, he has held group prayers at gas stations as far away as San Francisco, garnering international media attention and even claiming success in at least a couple of cases.

Last week, as one of the demonstrations was winding down, an angry gas station manager in Petworth chased them from the property, Twyman said, annoyed that the activists were hampering business.

Ahh…so much one could say about this. I’ll just say this. I guess that’s one way to approach things… 🙂

  1. Well maybe God could influence the rampant speculation, but other than that I’ll pray for this guy to understand modern economics.

  2. God doesn’t fix gas prices, nor does he probably care much about them. This makes God-believing people look like fools. I think God probably has bigger things on his mind and probably laughs at such silliness. What can help gas prices is if we start changing our lifestyle…I just did some research about that.
