The only way Obamagas is going is up. Everything else is going down.
The MSM are just savages with access to pencils.
They weren’t even consistent during the Bush years themselves — when prices were low, it was at the behest of Bush’s “oil buddies”; when they were high, it was so they could reap profits.
I mean, seriously, which is it? Do the oil companies want the prices low or high?
I’m about to cancel my subscription to the Arizona Republic. I have been meaning to for a while now, but yesterday’s piece on the border tears it for me. One of the lines, about 3 paragraphs in, described the fence as the “new iron curtain.” Sick of it.... It’s nothing but propaganda.
Thanks against_kerry. We’ve had yo-yo pricing around here the past couple of weeks, ranging about 50 c a gal.
