    It is only a few weeks after the election and gas prices are going up.

    Leave it to Bush to call his oil company buddies and tell them to raise the price of gas to punish the American people for voting for Democrats in the mid term election

    Also, have you noticed how the price of poultry is going up right before Thanksgiving?

    I can't wait for Pelosi and Co to take over Congress and we will see gas drop to 89 cents a gallon and the cost of living will be next to nothing

    im sure it has nothing to do with the anticipation of lower supply by Islamic countries or the anticipation of the raise in gasoline tax by the Democrats. No its all Bush.

    lol. The price has barely risen at the pump and these people are screaming Conspiracy?

    Just before autumn is in full bloom the Gas Companies switch over to new processing techniques in order to make more heating oil and other items that will be needed, this switch over causes a slight shrink in supply, prices rise temporarily. In about Novermeber they begin to go down, and then rise again as usage for that heating oil and traveling begins to show how supplies will be in the winter months....

    But heck, it's just Bush on the phone with his pals... "Punish them!" he says...

    WTF??

    Gas prices are a product of supply and demand - considering the congress is still Republican controlled until January, and unless they have suddenly passed some law that affects supply or demand in the last two weeks, then you can't assign any guilt or blame to them (dems or pubs), now can we?

    And "Bush Oil Buddies" is an oxymoron. The guy was a failure in that business as I recall - doubt he has many "buds" - and certainly none that would take his business "advice".

    Seasonal gas price changes have nothing to do with politics, other than the slight reaction in the commodities markets that happens after every election. This price reaction has nothing to do with *who* is elected, only that market activity tends to drop in volume in the weeks before an election, and then a corresponding market correction tends to occur after the election.

    But please feel free to point to whatever kooky conspiracy you like.

    :tinfoil:

    I think RSR was being sarcastic. Pointing out the lunacy of the liberal left.
