LOS ANGELES (AP) - August 29, 2008
Sean "Diddy" Combs complained about the "... too high" price
of gas and pleaded for free oil from his "Saudi Arabia brothers
and sisters" in a YouTube video posted Wednesday. The hip-hop
mogul said he is now flying on commercial airlines instead of in
private jets, which Combs said had previously cost him $200,000 and
up for a roundtrip between New York and Los Angeles.
"I'm actually flying commercial," Diddy said before walking
onto an airplane, sitting in a first-class seat and flashing his
boarding pass to the camera. "That's how high gas prices are. I'm
at the gate right now. This is really happening, proof gas prices
are too high. Tell whoever the next president is we need to bring
gas prices down."
