They are a part, but in the 90’s we were at this level of oil price and 80 cents a gallon.

And that was with Clinton.

There’s just no justification for the gas prices now, it’s all gouging.

It’s a shame your car doesn’t run on crude oil. I knew the gouging angle was coming. No reason to continue this debate since you believe oil companies should deliver the product for free. If you buy a cup of coffee today, that is where you’re being gouged by the producer. Oil drives the economy and the biggest taker is GOVERMENT.

Monty,
Your memory needs a little update. Oil was about $30 a barrel all through the Clinton years. Here’s a chart:

BS. At that time, the price of oil never reached half of today's price.

While gasoline prices were not that low.

The oil prices of the 90’s wasn’t anywhere near where it is today.

The last half of the 90’s the OFF Program and the smuggling of Iraqi oil drove the price so low it caused a worldwide recession.

I had an oil lease, I was selling oil at the time and there was times I only got $12-$15 per barrel and that was because I waited for the price to go up to sell.

Hip waders aren’t high enough for your BS.
