I am starting to see the typical haul the oil guys in to blame them for the prices of gasoline. This is classic congressional misdirection. One that will be repeated when the dollar collapse can no longer be finagled and propagandized and they haul whomever in front of their committees to save their sorry rear ends from the voters/American people.

European gas prices are not shooting up at the same rate as ours. Gas prices are increasing this time due to the shrinking dollar's purchasing power. This will only get worse. $10 a gallon gas in 2009?

Hunh. I guess I missed all the legislation where they balanced the budget, paid off the debt, addressed $60 trillion in unfunded liabilities, and sent Bellichek into exile.
