Bay Area Joins Holy Crude-sade

god.jpgDespite the fact that God callously ignored their prayers for ponies and army tanks as children, adults across the country are hoping the Almighty will benevolently lower the price of gas.

Rocky Twyman is a church choir director, community organizer and, unsurprisingly, a PR consultant, who has taken it upon himself to lead people in gas station pray-ins across the country. His quest hit the Bay Area Friday when he lead one at a local Chevron Station.

As he told the Chron, “God is the only one we can turn to at this point, our leaders don’t seem to be able to do anything about it. The prices keep soaring and soaring.” Rocky helpfully admits that maybe people should car pool and walk more in addition to asking God for help at the pump.

The last time Rocky was in the news was three years ago, when he spearheaded a petition drive to get Oprah a Nobel Prize. God wasn't on his side in that endeavor.

Check out a brief but awesome audio clip of Twyman discussing his plan here.

God could not be reached for comment. -Andy Wright
