Let the gas price conspiracy begin

It is now inevitable that the liberals will declare the drop in gas prices as a conspiracy for big oil to make Bush look better before the November elections. According to GasBuddy about half the country is charging less that $2.60 per gallon with the lowest pricing in a few counties in Ohio, Iowa and Missouri between $2.07 and $2.19.

The conspirators will overlook the high inventories in the US, the reduced risk of a hurricane like Katrina to rip through the Gulf, lessening of hostilities in the Middle-East, the fact that we are past the heavy summer driving season and other factors. They will fail to note that the price of oil has been somewhat artificial due to speculators flipping out every time there is any kind of possible ripple in the security of the oil supply. Maybe there was an effort to raise oil prices to make Bush look bad and it no longer could be sustained. Or maybe it is simply the laws of supply and demand kicking into place.

The real question is: do you want low gas prices? Or do you hope they stay high until after the election? I believe there is an element out there that welcomes every bit of bad news that they and media accomplices can then lay at Bush's feet. At no time during the Clinton years did I ever hope that things would go badly for the country so that conservatives would be elected. I have a very low opinion of anyone who would regardless of ideology.

I for one am doing my part to reduce fuel demand. I began carpooling today with a co-worker. It has been about three years since I have been able to carpool due to scheduling difficulties. It feels good to both save money and do my part to reduce the countries fuel consumption. It is even good for the environment. Maybe a few other readers will catch the bug.

    Of course in the most competitive states where the GOP is sucking wind as the true believers see the light. That same old terror rap will only go so far.

    /// lessening of hostilities in the Middle-East,//


    Are you and I living in the same world or did they neglect to mention that Iraq is in Civil war and that Afghanistan is going down the sh***er on today’s Rush Limplard show???

    65 bodies found in latest Iraq bloodshed as Sectarian Violence continues.

    I can live with High gas as I knew where it was all gonna go when Bushco won in 2004 and prepared. He's just using his and Cheney's connections in Big Oil and doing what he accused Clinton of. Those prices will go back up as soon as the elections are over. Too bad he and Cheney can't do anything about Iraq turning to Crap and the impending recession due to the Collapsing housing market. But then again give it time Rove and Co will spin it that it was all Clinton's fault.

    Hell, me and everyone else is still waiting for all that cheap gas we were supposed to get from going to war with Iraq...oh well just another Lie.

    Joe,

    Never once did anyone in the Bush administration promise cheap gas as a result of going to war with Iraq. If you could provide evidence of such a claim, I will eat my words and apologize to you on this blog for being wrong.
