It was God wot done it

Want to make petrol prices fall? Easy-peasy. Just pray to the big man in the sky.

That's what some guys in the States have been doing. And they have proof that the hand of the Almighty has reduced their gasoline prices, on average, from more than $4 to $3.80.

Rocky Twyman, a 59-year-old veteran community campaigner, started Pray at the Pump meetings at gas stations in April. Since then, the average price has dropped by around 20c per gallon (not per litre, so no big deal, but every little helps).

"We don't have anybody else to turn to but God," Twyman tells the BBC. "We have to turn these problems over to God and not to man."

Well, that just proves there is a God. The Ontological Argument, Argument from Design, deductive reasoning and so forth eat your hearts out. This is the Argument from the Petrol Pump.
