Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Oil Prices

The on going political crisis in the Arab world, which are the main producers/exporters of oil has triggered a massive increase of oil prices in the international market,which has been projected to hit $ 200 a barrel, the highest oil price of all time if the revolution we are witnessing do not cease. Due tot the autocratic rule of a few dictators in the oil producing countries, the whole world is going to pay dearly for their misrule. a responsive and sensitive government moves first to re-assure the citizenly about their welfare by developing viable economic policies earmarked to cushion the poor and marginalized against harsh and hostile economic crisis.
