That's terrible... The Bush administration??? Yeah, right! Why would they post any argument, as they're as much part of the oil industry as anyone!

Environmentalists are to blame for high gas prices. While maybe not so much for jet fuel price, it's food for thought.

WE are to blame for high gas prices, quit shifting blame to people of whom you expect to take responsibility as if they could do anything about it in such a short term that you can once again enjoy cheap gas!

You want cheap gas, tell about half of the world to STOP using it! Otherwise deal with it!

Dude, drop it, we know how much you hate the guy, which is a bias in and of itself that prevents all of us from replying objectively.

Oh yeah that's really, really smart... Yeah sure

Um, he's been involved from the beginning. You could even claim he's indirectly part of the reason gas prices are so high, considering that Bush didn't take much action to prevent the dollar from sliding, and that oil is sold in USD. However, of all the things to hold against Bush, the cost of oil isn't one of them. Regardless of what you think about gas prices, we still pay among the least of all industrialized countries.

The only 'food for thought' is how on earth you're able to feed yourself. I mean really, do you have any clue what you're talking about or do you just like to hear yourself type? Here's hoping you find happiness somewhere amongst all your ignorance. Oh, and lay off the FOX NEWS. Smoking that stuff can %@#! you up.  Big grin
