    They know because of the BUFFOON gw bush and the devil chaney gas prices are now structured where the Gov. cant control gas prices to any large degree.I have sugested Boycotting a large oil company to let big biz oil know we are tired of being Ripped Off but the repukes on this board have attacked that idea,I guess they all are invested in big oil.

    Motive is generally the most difficult thing to establish.

    We can all GUESS what motivates people to do what they do, but that's all it is...a guess.

    Why would you want to control gasoline prices?

    Prices are set by the market world wide. The amount of gas available and the demand for gas are what make up the price. Any government action to change the price by fiat results in shortages. Which is what we lived through in the 70's

    Trying to increase the supply of oil is trying to decrease the price of oil. The republicans have been arguing for years we need to drill domestically. In other words, they have been working for lower prices.

    The democrats have been demanding we reduce the amount of oil domestically produced. Reducing production reduces supply wich drives up prices.

    In other words, Democrats have been demanding higher priced oil. One of Obama's cabinet secratraries even baldly stated that his goal was to get US oil prices in line with Europe, where gas is sold by the quart for more than we usually pay for the gallon

    Your belief that government can control prices only shows what a moron you are.
