    I don't dispute it, I'm just saying it's not just Obama who plays silly games with official statistics. When it's in the government's interest for a number to be low they'll find reasons to make sure it's low. If it's in their interests for it to be high, it mysteriously starts to rise.

    Re: $4 a Gallon Gas Has Arrived, Is $6 a Gallon Gas in Your Future?

    All last week Obama lobbied the senate to vote down a bill giving the green light to Keystone-XL. Today the measure was defeated in the senate. OBAMA OWNS THIS. In the coastal waters off of Santa Barbara and Ventura counties there is so much oil and natural gas that it is seeping through cracks in in the ocean floor to such an extent that sea birds are found coated in the stuff and recently a whale watching boat encountered a natural gas spring boiling up with natural gas roiling the water from fissures in the ocean floor. In fact the amount of recoverable liquid petrolium in the lower 48 and Alaska is estimated at 1.6 TRILLION barrels. Thats enough oil to keep the largest of SUVs and hummers humming along for the next 250 years and not have to import a single drop. The problem is that environmentalists and government have laid down restrictions on public lands prohibiting oil drilling and production. If government were to get out of the way and grant leases and tell the environmentalists to shove off the price of oil would crash dive and the speculators would abandon the oil market. It is Obama who has revoked land based leases in the lower 48. It is Obama who has placed drilling morotoriums on production in the Gulf even though those morotoriums have been overturned by the courts no new production leases have been granted in the Gulf of Mexico since the sinking of BPs Deepwater Horizion. It is Obama withdrawl of Shell Oils permit in Alaska to set up a production platform offshore. It is Obamas stubborn refusal to allow oil to be extracted in ANWR Alaska. If you also include the non liquid shale based oil deposits that would tack on another 5 TRILLION more barrels of oil. Thats enough oil to not only power all those hugh honkin hummers but also have enough to export to the rest of the world for the next 500 years. These high gas prices are solely the fault of one evil monster -- BARRAK HUSSAIN OBAMA. - - - - Dravenhawk

    I do not care what gas costs. I am in God's hands. If He wants me to get to work, then He will make sure I arrive, regardless of the greed and avarice of man. Otherwise, I have plenty to do at home.

    Bingo!! As much as I rail on BHO and as much as I liked Dubya, remember that during the Dubya administration, gas went up quite a bit before it went down. In fact, after Katrina, I expected, after a while, that prices would've gone back close to pre-Katrina levels. It never really did (which I never understood why. Of course, I never read into the reason).

    Kind of seems it's heading in a direction that might actually see a future war fought on horseback......

    Hmmm, yes, possibly.

    I wonder though if the same thing could be achieved by global destruction of major world economies through political policy, not war.

    Re: $4 a Gallon Gas Has Arrived, Is $6 a Gallon Gas in Your Future?

    I heard on the way to work today the Federal Government may release some of it's "emergency" oil reserves to keep prices down. Is it a political ploy???

    Also, they release the reserves, but we STILL have to send most of it overseas to be processed. Our refineries here in the US are badly out of date: though I have also heard we may be building some new ones in the "near future".

    Releasing reserves only works as a short term measure, it's like spending your savings to tide you over until you get a new job. It's fine in theory but sooner or later the savings run out and then you're completely hosed.

    Just think what will happen to the price if the government uses up the emergency reserves and then Iran starts playing silly games in the Straits of Hormuz.

    I thought they already were, to a small extent. I do not think they will do anything major until later this summer, when the US driving season gets underway.

    Re: $4 a Gallon Gas Has Arrived, Is $6 a Gallon Gas in Your Future?

    I was thinking about this yesterday when I heard on the Rush Limbaugh show that Obama was going to release from the Stratigic reserve. Take into account that Obama has not released one single production drilling permit since taking office, He nixxed the Keystone-XL, as well as having already drawn from the SR last year (not sure he replaced it). These elements look to be forming the perfect oil storm. If I were a crazy Iranian leader I would want to bust a move all over the straights of Hormuz around late summer this year. - - - - Dravenhawk
