    It's Bush's fault! Wait, that's not right.

    Uh oh.....that means there is no reason to give them any power or countries to rule. Nor any reason to take any **** from them ever again.

    Hey, Bush is not in office any longer. You cannot keep blaming him.

    All you need to know is that when you head to the gas pump and you see prices dip below $3 a gallon, blame Obama.

    since the Sunni/Shia schism is not going anywhere, might as well play both sides.
    Keep the Israeli "special relationship", keep the UAE naval base. Negotiate with Iran, the Shiite Crescent.
    All of which tends to marginalize the Russians. Now we gotta stop screwing around with Egyptian internals (Obama's militay sanctions)

    I don't know about it going below $3 bucks...but I wouldn't be upset if it did.

    We don't have any US naval bases in the UAE, you are thinking of Bahrain of which there is only one which is in Manama.

    I do know Bahrain is not a huge base, mostly piers? But I had thought abu dahabi (UAE) was a significant base? Abu Dhabi Naval Base | EDSA

    The average price of a gallon of regular gas now stands at $3.19, according to AAA, after falling by about a penny a day for the last week. The steady decline has taken the average price below $3 already in six states -- Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas, Kansas and Louisiana. Another six states are enjoying an average price within a nickel of that benchmark and could dip below three dollars soon.

    But $3 gas isn't just limited to these 6 states.

    Nearly 20% of gas stations nationwide are already charging less than $3 a gallon for regular gas, according to the Oil Price Information Service. And those stations are selling far more than their share of gas.
    Gas under $3 - coming to a station near you - Nov. 11, 2013

    It's been $2.97 here for a week. About 40 minutes down the Interstate, it's $2.88.
