Hallelujah! It's Raining Gasoline!

St. Louis residents have organized prayer vigils at the gas pumps. Darrell Alexander, Midwest co-chair of the Pray at the Pump movement (yes, it's a movement) is taking economic matters into his own hands, and passing them along to Jesus.

The religious ritual will include buying gas, and singing "We Shall Overcome" with a new verse "We (shall) have lower gas prices".

This may be part of an ongoing trend. You may recall that Georgia's Governor Perdue prayed for rain on the steps of the Capitol building recently in the drought stricken South East and it rained! (No need to be a stick in the mud and point out that rain was in the forecast when they scheduled the vigil - shhhh).

St. Louis prayer groups are reporting that their efforts are working as gas is falling below $4 bucks (so that explains it, oil speculators our asses).
