    nonsense

    those who can carpool will try to carpool, when gas hits a hundred dollars a tank (in times like these)

    those who can't carpool will...

    well, whine isn't the best word for what they'll do

    they'll VOTE, is more like it

    so will the carpoolers

    few of us work at military bases

    It is an absurd argument to suggest that anything our politicians do, short of price setting schemes, will have anything to do with the price of oil. The price of oil will climb, not because of government intervention but because of increased consumption.

    Can everybody car pool? No.....
    nor does everybody have to drive a 4x4 truck with one person in it every day to and from work...
    I buy ethanol free gas and drive my pick up 80 miles each way to work. Of course I stay out 3 weeks at a time so I fill up once a month or less

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    yesterday, the white house intimated that it might cave on epa particulars in order to keep the govt from shutting down

    the greenie outrage was pretty gruesome and by afternoon, typical of this crew, the admin was "furiously" backpedaling from its capitulation

    President Barack Obama's relationship with environmentalists sits on thin ice after a major league meltdown over whether he will really defend their biggest demand: EPA climate change rules.

    Tensions have crossed into the danger zone between the two camps after a year of cross-ups, including the failure to get a cap-and-trade bill through the Senate and Obama’s embrace of what historically have been green no-no’s like oil drilling and nuclear power.

    Angst grew this week after Obama failed to use a major energy policy speech at Georgetown University to explicitly back the EPA's global warming agenda. Then, in what might have begun as a misunderstanding over acronyms, the AP reported that the president was leaning on House Democrats to accept a GOP-authored budget rider that would thwart EPA's greenhouse gas regulations.

    The White House furiously denied the story, but the fate of the budget debate over the next eight days could govern the relationship between the administration and environmental community through the 2012 election.
