Wasted Things ---- Mainly Money

Why is the cost of gas so high?
Why do retired politicians get so much money?
The first I really don't understand since there are oil wells capped off in Alberta. There shouldn't be a supply-demand imbalance in Canada.
So that leaves the question of the politicians.
Here again I don't understand why someone who did very little but suck up the resources of our country or province should get a retirement income that exceeds most people's 3 to 5 year total income. I know people trying to live on less than $1000/month that has been ruled by these same politicians as a sufficient income for the handicapped.

comments more than welcome
