    Man Asks God for Cheaper Gas


    OAKLAND, CA — A man of faith from the District of Columbia area is
    going over the heads of government and industry leaders by asking God
    for cheaper gas.

    Rocky Twyman, a public relations consultant and church choir director
    from the Washington suburbs, said he held his first gas station pray-in
    Wednesday in Washington. He followed that up with an event in San
    Francisco Friday and had a third prayer session scheduled Monday in
    Oakland, Calif., the San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday.

    Twyman said the prayers he leads do not ask God for any specific event
    to lower the price at the pump. He said he believes prayers of this
    manner should be kept simple.

    "God, deliver us from these high gas prices," Twyman said. "That’s all they have to say."

    Consumer advocates said that while they may doubt Twyman’s methods will yield results, they applaud his effort.

    "Given the complete inertia and silence of this White House on a crisis
    that has people feeling just hopeless, prayer is probably as good as
    anything," said Judy Dugan, research director with the non-profit group
    Consumer Watchdog. "Frankly, I wish them luck."
