Did anyone notice the housing bubble burst at the same time oil hit all time highs,Even the dems saw it , in 2003 at 1.72 gal. they blamed Bush for high oil prices, 4-22-06 according to USA today the dems. blamed Bush for high oil prices & not enough alt. energy. In 07 Senator O asked the FTC to investigate Big Oil, gas went from 2.17 to 3.22. 2008 Candidate O urged the DOJ to investigate energy traders, and said we should implement a windfall profits tax any time oil is over 80$ .Now I hear gas should reach 5$ gal in the next year, but I don't hear anything from Pres.O, except to ban drilling in a lot of places we know have oil. If you think the economy dropped before, wait for 5$ gas, ask yourself how thats going to fit in your budget,squeeze a little more America, the big O knows you've got more, and there are poor that need it more than you.
