ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WJBK) -

$4.00 a gallon gas is a rip off!  Even Sunoco station owner Dan said big oil is greedy.

"Oil companies gouge.  We don't," he remarked.

Dan helped us procure three of the plastic numerals gas stations use to post prices on their signs.  He said we should "shred them".

So where do you get a wood chipper or a scraper to do the numbers in?  Button's Rent-It in Royal Oak.

"We're going to crush them.  We're going to get rid of them, chop them up.  The gas prices are going down," said Church Button.

Turns out it was a lot harder to crush gas prices than we thought.  It took three different power tools to cut the $4.05 price in half just so we could feed the wood chipper.

Check out Jason Carr's video report to watch him exact his revenge on rising gas prices.
