    The oil companies, speculators, etc. mean nothing next to the government.

    Consider this:

    -OPEC only accepts the US DOLLAR when it sells barrels of oil
    -The fed through Quantitative Easing (Printing more money) lowers the value of the dollar.
    -Historically speaking, as the dollar declines, gas prices rise.

    It isn't that the price is necessarily increasing as much as it is ballancing out relative to the actual value of the dollar. If the American people had a collective half a brain they would be swarming the federal reserve demanding it's immediate disbandment. But alas, we have politicians like our President out there blaming those who are not the crux of the issue...and Obama knows that, but he is putting his chips on the American people being stupid. So, are you stupid?

    I blame the Republicans....we did not have these problems before they took over the House

    Since taking over the House of Representatives, they have not passed a single bill to reduce escallating gas prices

    OF COURSE you blame republicans; you're a hack and an idiot. And why would they pass a bill to reduce prices when prices are decided by the free global market process? Get a grip. The Federal reserve prints money, that devalues the dollar, that causes prices to go up. It is NOT rocket science, but I guess for morons like you it is pretty close.

    I have been telling people this for years. It is the oldest government scam in the book. Print money like crazy now & it will cause commodity prices to rise a year from now. Then when prices rise the media will jump on every story of shortage, over consumption or speculators to explain the sudden price rise. People never ever see through the smoke & mirrors to find that the real culprit is all the free money the government printed, borrowed & spent on their favorite groups of people last year.

    You will be lead to believe we need to invest in conservation to keep prices down.

    Let me ask you this.... what has Obama done to bring them down?

    Answer: NOTHING

    He however HAS done plenty of things to make them go up.... the moratorium on drilling being one.... giving contracts to Brazil is another.... buying oil from them as well....

    Give me a break RW... at least be honest about it.

    We didn't have these problems when Nancy Pelosi ran the House

    Boehner is a lightweight and needs to resign

    Boehner is too busy trying to prevent gays from marrying

    He needs to stop this DOMA crap and start doing something about high gas prices

    We never had these issues with Nancy Peolosi

    I do. We have the largest oil reserves in the world. The worst part is we could be an oil exporter if we utilized the CO oil sands, ANWR, offshore, deep seas, along with our current drilling operations.

    Heck start drilling here and just get imports down to Canada should be the plan!
