Diesel Fuel Prices Only Lining Oil Companies Pockets

Here's a fresh perspective from a small business owner trying to stay afloat.
We have a trucking company with 1 truck. During 2011, our company spent just over $100,000 on diesel fuel. Which was about 35% of our gross sales.
Thought - if the diesel price was 1/3 less so instead of an average of $3.75 for 2011, it was $2.50 a gallon, that would have meant an extra $30,000 in my pocket - NOT the oil companies pocket when they already have record earnings.
What could I have done with an extra $30,000? Reinvested in my business, added another truck and created another job, the money would have been spent in my local community - how far could that go? VERY FAR!
Don't let the Wall Street speculators and our Government ruin small businesses with their greed.
