Unjust gas prices

Always there used to be a mechanism to adjust prices
Gold & Gas always used to reduce instantly their prices
Once it was $140 a barrel it jumped up to $5 per gallon
Now it is less than $40 per barrel still prices are same!
It is a shameful act by not giving benefit to consumers
Those who are living pay check to pay check, sufferer
How can go to that extent to be unkind to our brothers
Go into contemplation find how to help fellow sufferers

Unjust earned money is useless a burden acknowledge
I see poverty all around do something for their salvage
Gas is a necessity without which can't go to their college
Think no education means darkness, we can't roll it back

By doing so we are harming our economy it's a set back
What will happen, no money means you can't eat cake
No matter how much you reduce oil prices, it'ill be a fake
Think what you are doing harming yourself a great mistake

Amazing there is no mechanism to correct the such system
Where are those thinkers of think-tank and their rich wisdom
I am forming a non binding committee to correct the system
Report says prices must be reduced less than half with wisdom
