Gas Wars

You know things are coming to a head when small town gun shop owners comment that even their most conservative customers talking about what you've put up on Tyrannicide.

And the thing that seems to be triggering this kind of conversation is the rising price of gasoline. It's beginning to sound like 1776 all over again, when people were being taxed to death. I wonder how long it will be before we start hearing news reports of gas station attendants being shot trying to prevent drive-aways. Or people hijacking gasoline trucks.

If that starts, I would expect that people whose lives have been ruined with nothing left to lose will take revenge against the oil billionaires to the next level by taking pot-shots at them and their families - or perhaps even at oil refineries, with tracers. And we know what that would lead to, and how the public would probably respond when neighbors start disappearing in the middle of the night.
