    How many times do price controls have to be shown to be failures before governments stop trying to use them?

    It will only stop when most people come to the conclusion that price controls do not have the intended consequences. Since most people are stupid, the answer to your questions is infinity.

    You can count on liberals operating on emotion and usually on the verge of hysteria but I haven't heard of any price gouging in the disaster area. There is a shortage of goods and services but it seems that the hysterical liberal mind prefers to "imagine" the worst about people rather than helping them.

    I think it's interesting that Katrina effected a release from the SPR.
    Here we have refined products being released into the market. FOR FREEEEEEEEEE!

    It's a good thing.

    This is not rocket science. The purpose is not 'price', it is 'control'.

    That would be because that champion of liberalism Chris Christie has threatened people not to raise their prices, or he'll charge them with price gouging.
