We Got a Great Big Convoy...

It looks like the '70s nostalgia is reaching new heights. Not only do we have people pissed off about gas prices, but they're forming a good, old-fashioned convoy to make their anger known.
MIAMI -- More than 600 truckers gathered in their big rigs Wednesday to protest the rising gas prices in South Florida, NBC 6's Hank Tester reported.

The trucks, which included tractor-trailers, dump trucks and box trucks, gathered at the intersection of Okeechobee Road and the Florida Turnpike in Miami-Dade County.

Traffic in the area was at a standstill as the trucks started a caravan headed toward Miami City Hall.

Somewhere, the ghost of C.W. McCall is smiling.

I'm not a whiny canadian pop-singer turned anger poster child, but isnt it kinda ironic to use ridiculous amounts of gas when you're protesting the high price of it?

Can they protest the sun while they are at it? I mean, can protesting or drawing attention to something EVERYONE is aware of possibly be effective? I protest nagging tickle coughs. I hate that.

"By the way, I'm aware of the irony of appearing on TV in order to decry it, so don't bother pointing that out."

They're not even using the good gas. All they use is the malt liquor of petroleum, diesel.

Don't you hate pants?
