Pray At The Pump. is a nutty little fringe website, and I found this item via the Drudge Report:
     As the price of oil continues to rise, some are turning to God and prayer for an answer to their financial troubles.
     The Pray at the Pump Movement, founded by Rocky Twyman, has been holding prayer vigils at gas stations across the country. On Monday, Twyman decided to take his movement from Exxon and Shell stations straight to the steps of the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, D.C., hoping to encourage the oil-rich country to raise the amount of barrels they release each day from 200,000 to 1.2 million. 
     Twyman, who is a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, spent the afternoon outside of the embassy praying and asking passersby to sign his petition for the release of more oil, which he hopes to deliver to the Saudi oil minister. 
     I never thought I'd have anything in common with Seventh-day Adventists, but just the other day, I said, "Jesus Christ!" when I pulled up to the pump.
