This hits poor and middle class hard. They don’t care.

I’ve run into single people that are telling me they now have to decide on who to date based on where in the city/county/region they’re living in because a drive across town 2-3 times a week is an additional $200-300 a month decision.

I remember when we had $4/gallon gas in 08 and the media was on a non-stop b!tch session.

Now it’s not even discussed....

Sort of like “homeless problem” and “McJobs” and “Recovery for Wall $treet but not Main Street”

“This hits poor and middle class hard. They don’t care”

Yes they do. Here’s a nice government-owned city bus with a union worker driving it for them! And a $0.50 cent fare, also, subsidized by the more fortunate motorists in cars.

Actually, the Dems don’t want high gas prices — late in an election year. This is by Moonbat Brown used amazing “emergency” powers to waive some rules to allow more “unapproved” blends to be brought in. You can bet that if this was a Republican incumbent, the EPA would be all over this like stink on s***. So far - crickets.
