    Do progressives really believe this nonsense??

    Who the fuck you actually think you're fooling here??

    Gasoline prices' jump attests to upbeat economy - Page 2 - chicagotribune.com

    The arrogance of progressives is absolutely astounding..

    When Bush was president and gas soared it was a sign of a bad economy but NOW high gas prices are a sign of a good economy???

    Progressives belong in the loony bin..

    I'm absolutely speechless over this piece (of shit)..

    Technically higher gas prices does boost the economic numbers, but does not boost the human numbers.
    It did the same thing under the Bush Admin. Along with higher home prices then as well.

    What makes the economy looks better usually hurts the people in recent decades.

    What that means is that the world economy is picking up enough that they are competing with us for the fuel that our refineries are producing. So what are you suggesting, Nicky? That the government step into the free market?

    Technically progressives are retarded propagandists.

    Gas prices would go down in a good economy...

    Nick doesn't like free markets.

    That's the current driver of the current prices. Competing markets..and speculation.

    They did not Under Bush's good economy.
    The economics rules taught in school are no longer fully valid in a global economy.

    Just what is a "good" economy anyway?
    One that is growing?

    I see. There is a product with a limited supply. There is a very strong demand for that product. But the price is supposed to go down? In a good economy where people have money? I take it that the name Adam Smith means nothing at all to you.
