Attorney General Holder cites "disturbing" information on gas prices

Washington (CNN) -- Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday "there are a couple of things that are disturbing" as the government launches its oil and gas fraud task force investigation into sharply rising gasoline prices.
In a meeting with reporters at the Justice Department, Holder declined to describe the "disturbing" matters, but made clear the broad investigation into potential fraud and other illegal activities would carefully comb industry information to search for wrongdoing.
Holder aides say they expect announcements next week. The task force is gearing up to look for price gouging, but will not yet include any criminal or civil charges.
"We are only in the very beginning phases of the investigation," Holder told reporters at the off-camera session in his office.
Holder's comments came as he was pressed about how his announcement of a task force would be different from similar announcements made by previous administrations when gas prices spiked, but that did not yield any prosecutions.

If Holder-butt wants “disturbing” he can 1) look in the mirror, or 2) look at the Obamaloon.
And, if one wants to know how low legal standards have fallen, just remember that Holder and the Obamaloon both hold degrees in law.
That’s like granting a degree in physics to Pelosi.
What’s disturbing is that Holder hasn’t been dismissed yet.
Heard on the radio today that Obama is saying he’s going to make the oil companies return some of their obscene profits.
Hmmm. . . . I have a name for this. . . they could call it the “Windfall Profits Tax”.
Like Yogi said, ‘it’s deja vu all over again.”
Maybe Steadman did an actual investigation for a change and found out who the real culprit is.
I could see that revelation as disturbing to him.
I think it’s “disturbing” that the Administration and all of the agencies underneath it are doing everything in their power(and more) to undermine us in using our own domestic sources.
This is like OJ Simpson vowing to find the real murderer of his wife.
I find that very disturbing.
Disturbing? Really? IMHO that pretty much sums up the Obama policies for the past two years.
Let me guess. The investigation will last until Nov. 2012.
We need to start hanging this dude around the Senate’s neck. He should have been hauled up before them a LONG time ago..But gee, who controls the Senate I wonder?
TARP funds were funneled by banks into secret Exxon accounts and they are pouring cash into the futures market before selling their offshore tanker's full of crude at $120.00 bbl
DOJ findings will lead Hussein The Magnificent to demand 20 Billion
yuan dollars from Exxon so Eric's people will get reparations for deys tanks ah gaz.
This will be recited by MSM teleprompter readers with totally deadpan strait faces.
Hey, Holder, you effing moron, the only disturbing thing that’s happened is that the dollar is tanking.
RACIST!! Don’t you realize it’s all for the children?!?!?!...
“Hey, Holder, you effing moron, the only disturbing thing thats happened is that the dollar is tanking.”
The dollar is going to be replaced by ObamaBucks; absolutely worthless just like their namesake.
that Incompetent Ass runs America?
Eric Holder: “High gas prices are RACIST against MY PEOPLE!”
Can members of the cabinet be impeached?
Smoke & Mirrors. Nothing more, nothing less.
Everyone else in the country cites “disturbing” information on Attorney General Holder, and not for the first time. Thanks Libloather.
Well, THAT should bring down prices. /s
History repeats itself:
Stalin claimed to find conspiracies and enemies everywhere. “Kulaks” were blamed for all agricultural failures, while “wreckers” bore responsibility for industrial disasters.

What’s disturbing is that we are not accessing our natural resources - that is what’s disturbing.
You got that right----US national security is at stake.
We keep being told that producing our own vast energy resources is an "environmental issue?" Baloney. Enviro issues are strictly agit-prop.
The stunning reality is that the US has vast reserves of energy ---- offshore oil, natural gas, coal. Oil companies have had tremendous success unlocking big quantities of natural gas from dense shale rock formations in North America. We're talking about TRILLIONS of barrels of oil equivalent in shale natural gas.
ACTION NOW We need to alert the PTB that we are onto the gross manipulation by those who are colluding, who want the US to sink trillions in the Mideast......including war profiteers getting rich beyond Croesus with our tax dollars------and by Mideast countries too stupid to govern themselves without US "foreign aid." "America is dependent on foreign oil" is a knee-jerk reaction, a bunch of propaganda.......The Big Lie which forced America into invading three ME countries at a cost of trillions of US tax dollars.
The US gets a huge 25% of its oil needs from nearby Canada----which will increase in the near future. The red-hot center of the 21st century's gold rush is the western Canadian province of Alberta. Spread under 54,363 square miles of boreal forest -- a little less than the land area of Florida -- lie proven reserves of 174 billion barrels, second only to Saudi Arabia's.
What with engineering know-how, huge advances in technology, and the $$$$trillions to be made----a small $100 billion investment will get the Canadian reserves out of the ground in no time....
All in our own backyard, just down a country road, and over the bridge, from bucolic, peaceful New England.
The only thing “disturbing” is that dear leader is still in office after all this is happening.
The “Big Bad Oil” campaign continues...
