MEMORIAL Day has to be their favorite holiday. Not because they historically hike the price at the pump over the long weekend, but because they have the most powerful nation on earth to defend their practice of gouging the American people at the pump.

They should really reduce the price over this weekend by 75 percent or more so people can afford to make the trip to pay tribute to the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. Shame on you, Big Oil.
