    The industry aspect is different. A lot of those guys made a sh!t ton of cash from working the spill and aren't going back to fishing. In fact, I read several articles where guys just can't find people to crew their fishing boats.

    The oyster issue really has nothing to do with the actual oil. The reason the oyster population was hit so hard is that opened all of the Mississippi River flow controls wide open which significantly decreased the salinity in the oyster beds. So in a nutshell, fresh water killed the oyster populations.

    That would make it secondhand, at best.

    Your brother might have firsthand knowledge, but when he passed it on to you, it would become secondhand knowledge, or hearsay.

    The current gas price spike may not be entirely Obama's fault, but he cannot honestly disclaim responsibility for many of his policies that have contributed significantly to higher gas prices.

    It would have been much worse, if he had been able to much more freely implement the policies he said he wanted, especially on the “green energy” front, where he outright admitted that if implemented, his policies would lead to much higher energy costs.

    Neither Bush NOR Obama can force oil companies to drill for oil.. Obama's obligation however, was to re evaluate safety regulations after DeepWater horizon.

    Name them.

    What is contributing greatest to rising fuel prices is rising oil prices, the rising oil prices are a result of speculation over the increasing tension in the ME, namely Iran. Those tensions come from ultra-cons clamoring for war with Iran.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    oil started going up big-time when the **** started to hit the fan in Libya. prices didn't go down too much even after Ghaddafi was snuffed. with all the crap going on in the Middle East, its simply no wonder oil prices are high.

    we may be the big bad USA, but one thing we really CAN'T control, (other than by conquering the entire damn Middle East), is oil supplies.

    Production is up and demand is down yet some still believe Obama had something to do with increased prices?

    Oh surely you jest. Seriously. There are always possible political motives involved in all decisions made by all elected officials. That's why they call them politicians. You righties crack me up.
