    Okay, so who is telling him what to do, and what is that person telling him to do that raises gas prices?

    This is classic right wing rhethoric: whine like little girls when the economy is dragging ass, and then, when the economy picks up and gas prices naturally rise as a result, whine like little girls about high gas prices.

    It has been noted over and over what the administration could do to lower oil prices. Why is it that stuff has to be repeated over and over just to be asked to provide it again?

    From Charlotte, when driving to the South Carolina shore, there is a closed down gas station that as a regular gas price of $1.09. Oh the days... I got my license right after they ended

    When I first started driving (1968) to HS in my VW bug (which got 30 mpg way back then), I paid 37 cents per gallon for gas.

    It has to do with a combination of Iran, Europe, and a higher demand. If more nations demand a good (that has a limited availability), there is less of that good available and the price is driven upwards.
    doubt you mentioned that when it was Bush

    Gas prices will cripple this economy. Cripple. No tax cut or holiday is going to help. If fuel prices continue to increase, the recession will return.

    If gas companies would put the excess gas in the U.S. market instead of exporting it, the prices at the would drop drastically -- but then so would their profits. So don't expect that to happen.

    I don't undertand this reasoning. The only way it would make a difference would be if there wasn't enough here. There is. Nobody is having any problem getting gas. It makes no sense to try and flood a market with something not needed.

    Do we have calls for GM to produce 30,000 cars when they forcast a market for 17,000?
