    It's all going according to plan... The great Obama has spoken... $5 gas is good because you shouldn't be driving anyway.

    There ya go.

    A right wing blog post? You've gotta be kidding......

    I noticed there was no reference in that little rant about how gas ended up costing 5 bucks/gal under Bush Jr.

    Why is it when some middle eastern country farts wrong the price of oil goes through the roof? Is it because oil is a commodity run by speculation, and somewhere someone is making a killing off oil being artificially inflated? (a.k.a greed)

    If we open up our oil reserves how much do we allow out? until it's gone and then what?

    "Drill baby drill", great slogan but we would need more than a handfull of refinerees to accomodate. Also, how long would it take to equal the import of foreign oil?

    It goes with out saying that when this happened under GWB it was because Big Oil was in the White House, but this time, it's different.

    Ask a liberal - he'll tell you.
