Wowee, praying for lower gas prices worked! It must be true because a bunch of Christians prayed for lower gas prices … and then gas prices climbed some more … and then they went down somewhat. So now, Group gives thanks to the Lord — for lower gasoline prices:
Forget Congress. Forget President Bush. About four months ago, frustrated by the apparently immutable laws of supply and demand, Rocky Twyman turned to a higher authority in his quest for cheaper gasoline.
The recent dip in prices, he says, is proof of divine intervention. “Prayer is the answer to every problem in life,” said Twyman, founder of the Pray at the Pump movement, whose members huddle around gas pumps and ask the Almighty to lower gasoline prices.
“If the whole country keeps on praying, we can bring down prices even more, to even less than $2,” Twyman said.
The article notes that the average nationwide price for gas has dropped 32 cents in the past month. However, this current low is 25 cents higher than it was on April 23, when these Christians began praying. Oh but not to worry, these wingnuts won’t let the pesky facts get in the way of their spiritual triumph! God is great!
