FARK.com: (3656470) As the national average for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline reaches $4, keep in mind that mere months ago President Bush accused a reporter who asked about $4 gas of liberal bias

Electing an oil man president and complaining when the price of gas goes up is like electing a pimp and complaining about the rising price of vagina.
And the truthiness flows…this particular piece of it coming from this story.
NEW YORK – The average price of regular gas crept up to $4 a gallon for the first time over the weekend, passing the once-unthinkable milestone just in time for the peak summer travel season.
Prices at the pump are expected to keep climbing, especially after last week’s furious surge in oil prices, which neared $140 a barrel in a record-shattering rally Friday.
While Americans who have to drive will feel the biggest squeeze, the increased prices also translate into higher costs for consumers and businesses, who will be forced to shoulder increased transportation costs of food and anything else that needs to be transported.
Really folks, is there any question left as to where the blame lies for this debacle?
Der Vassermeister 2008-06-08 08:52:25 PM Do you know the price per barrel of oil in February 200? (For historical context, that would be the month before the Iraq invasion). The answer is that in February 200, the month before the Iraq invasion, the per barrel price of oil was [$35.87].
