Fuel prices are now so high even hip-hop moguls like Sean "Diddy" Combs can no longer afford a private jet.

The frequent-flyer Diddy has used an internet video blog, posted on YouTube, to launch a tirade against the soaring cost of petrol and pleaded for free oil from his "Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters".

The video offers a quirky insight into how even the rich and famous are feeling the pinch from rising global oil prices — albeit from the cost of maintaining über luxurious personal airplanes.

Combs said he is now flying on commercial airlines instead of in his private jet.

He said the private jet costs him more than $230,000 for a roundtrip between New York, where he lives, and Los Angeles, which he visits twice a month to pursue an acting career.

"Even your boy [Diddy] is affected by gas prices," Diddy tells a hand-held camera as he boards an airplane in the two-minute blog.

"I'm actually flying commercial. I'm at the gate right now. This is really happening. This is proof that gas [gasoline] prices are too high.

"We need to do something about this. Tell whoever the next president is, we need to bring gas prices down," Diddy says before taking his seat and flashing his boarding pass to the camera.

The hip-hop mogul even makes a plea to oil-producing countries.

"I want to give a shout out to all my Saudi Arabian brothers and sisters, and all my brothers and sisters from all the countries that have oil.

"If yo'all could please send me some oil for my jet, I would truly appreciate it."

WHAT A MORON

"If yo'all could please send me some oil for my jet, I would truly appreciate it."

If we had money to buy oil, we keep it for ourselves.

"We need to do something about this. Tell whoever the next president is, we need to bring gas prices down," Diddy says before taking his seat and flashing his boarding pass to the camera.

Uh. The president doesn't decide what the oil prices are.

Sure, he may be rich, but this just goes to show that everyone is being affected by the rising fuel prices: It's not just the lower and middle class citizens anymore.

I think he did it as a joke, but it didn't come off well.

I still have a lot of respect for him. He worked hard for his success and deserves it all imo.
