Chicago IL (PRWEB) November 14, 2005
Consumers finally have a central location to voice their complaints about the high price of gas and oil, as the new web site http://www.FightTheCost.com web site makes its debut.
"Politicians want to get re-elected, no matter how much tax money these high prices generate," says Richard "Bronco" Jefferson, co-founder of this new site. "This site makes it easy for voters to alert their local politicians that the time has come to end these inflated prices. Even this recent slight drop in prices is not good enough."
http://www.FightTheCost.com also features specific contact information for many of the larger petroleum companies.
The site's Resource Directory allows consumers to find out how their vehicle(s) stack up in terms of miles per gallon, fuel tax rates for most states, and government information regarding heating oil and consumer tips.
This is in addition to the Newsroom with updated stories on topics ranging from gas price comparisons to actions by politicians, and consumer tips.
Consumers are also encouraged to submit their ideas on coping with high gas and heating oil prices, with many of the entries published. The best submissions will also be featured on the http://www.FightTheCost.com Home Page.
Daily visitors to http://www.FightTheCost.com are asked to make at least one complaint each day or visit, whether to an oil company, local politician, or idea submission.
"We would like to see this lead the way in a consumer movement to put an end to this unfortunate price gouging", adds Jefferson. "In a way, I'd like to have FightTheCost.com be a short-lived web site."
Planning is underway to support the trucking industry, as well as taxi and limousine services, which also suffer from inflated gas prices.
A limited amount of outside advertising will appear to help cover operational costs. Business and personal web sites are encouraged to place a link to http://www.FightTheCost.com.
