    Don't you remember obama telling you that with HIS energy policy FUEL PRICES WOULD NECESSARILY RISE. That's one promise he did keep.

    Cause the oil companies are allowed to retail price gas that has already been refined based on
    what they (futures traders) think a barrell of oil will cost in the future. A future that has a war in it with Iran. And that scares the future traders so they have to run the price up so that the oil companies can post another year of record profits. And they make a lot of money.

    Oh yea, and the oil companies and Wall street are pissed at Obama. So if they can hurt him. help the Repubs and make a fortune as well, well what greedy bastard wouldn't do that?

    The fact that regular folk take a beating. Well, they call that collateral damage. Just don't drive as much. It only hurts for a little while.

    Hope that answers your question.

    seems "blaming everyone but the leader of the free world" is contagious.

    a) Obama has no energy policy
    b) Energy "policy" wouldn't effect prices to the degree we've seen anyway
    c) Naive backwards is...

    Let's lay our cards on the table. The liberal mantra involves forcing Americans to adapt to radical environmental standards based on the bad data of pseudo-scientists. The Global warming extortion scam was instituted about the same time Fannie Mae collapsed under democrat supervision and the economy went south. What are we to assume when the best shovel ready job in the world was vetoed by the president? Barry vetoed it because it involved oil. Obama and the democrats have been keeping oil prices high for decades. Democrats thrive in a crisis mode when Americans are cold and unhappy. The last thing Obama wants is low oil prices. America has been selling it's treasures to oil producing countries for decades and we are in hock up to our ears and all we hear from democrats is global warming caused by greedy decadent Americans. We need to keep our heads and understand where Barry is leading the democrat party. We can't afford another four years of lies. Anybody but Barry in November.

    He did say that. But that was in reference to the cap and trade bill which thankfully never passed.

    This is specifically from our enemies manipulating the market.
