Ghost of Norman Fell Performs a Miracle

Jehovah: 0
Ghost of Norman Fell: 3.732

According to AAA, the price of gas has hit its sixth consecutive record high. For something to happen once or twice might be coincidence, but for it to happen six times in a row is clearly the result of supernatural intervention.

Gas strikes 6th straight record high

Retail gas prices hit record highs for the sixth straight day, auto group AAA's Web site showed Tuesday.

The latest reading from AAA showed that the nationwide average for a gallon of regular unleaded hit $3.732, up from $3.718 the previous day.

Gas prices have now increased for seven straight days. The climb comes ahead of the Memorial Day holiday and start of the summer driving season.

The AAA national average shows gas prices up nearly 11% over the past month and up 21% from year-ago levels...
Rocky Twyman's pathetic Prayer at the Pump movement has withered in the face of my Fill Up with Fell effort.

In a related comment, LiveJournal user jjjiii pleads for mercy:
I'm begging you to stop this infernal prayer to the Fell god before you destroy us all!
Sorry, jjjiii, but the prayers will continue until May 27, as per the original plan. I would consider ending them only if Rocky Twyman makes a public statement that he has come to realize the error of his ways and will henceforth leave off his blasphemy and come and knock on the door of the One True Roper.

Rocky, we've been waiting for you.
