    It's already happening...

    Zero Pollution Motors (ZPM) confirmed to PopularMechanics.com on Thursday that it expects to produce the world's first air-powered car for the United States by late 2009 or early 2010.

    Not a Democrat. Your pathetic attempt at labeling has like all your arguments, failed.

    Yeah. The price of oil is based on a large number of items, many of which a president generally has little control. I will grant this time it's somewhat different as the one thing Obama can actually do is scrap something that the partisan right wing hacks here want him to keep.

    They blame him for high oil prices, but the vast majority of causes are out of his control. The one he does have control is the one they want him to keep.

    The oil increase during Bush's era was largely due to the the slide of the dollar and large investors and insitutions currency hedging via oil. Uncle Ben and Uncle Bush by loose monetary standards and deliberate fiscal policies pushed the dollar down and down. Exports were up for obvious reasons but a weak comparative dollar cause oil to increase. Right now we have somewhat of that effect but the other economies are in worse shape causing a flow back of money into the US which compenstates. Therefore the argument isn't really valid as the debasing of the dollar isn't happening like it did under Bush. The dollar is gaining strength largely on the back of a weak Euro. In essence we have Greece to thank for why oil isn't being used as a currency hedge.

    Well, Schumer, Pelosi, et al are partisan. That's what they do.

    As far as the media goes, when Bush was President was the first time gas went to $3.00. That's news. It's not anymore. Kind of like when the Dow hit 10,000. Then it was news, now it's not.

    The point being is that you said he has no control over the prices in one sentence and then go on to note how he would do one thing and the prices would fall.

    Which is it? Can he do things to control the prices or not?
