Speaking of offering people free stuff... OpecInfo.com, a fake site claiming to be "The Internet's Best Gas Resource," appears to have fallen victim to its own April Fools prank.

"In response to the fallout, Connor said the company is going to honour its agreement to anyone who filled out the online form, entitling motorists to $50 US worth of gas every month for six months starting in May."

WHAT?? Why are they caving in like this?? Anyone who's gullible enough to believe that OPEC is giving away free gas deserves their embarrassment & inconvenience. Is this our 'educated electorate'??

I think it's called "buying back customer goodwill".
