    Default maneuvering to increase gas prices at the pump?

    maneuvering to increase gas prices at the pump?

    Long-anticipated climate-change legislation is scheduled to be unveiled in the Senate today. The ostensible purpose is to clean the air by cutting carbon emissions 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. If the bill becomes law, though, consumers will get smoked as they are forced to pay more for a fill-up.

    Backers of this measure are more beholden to ideology than reality. As scientific data shows the Earth is actually cooling, the only thing heating up is alarmist rhetoric. On Friday, Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs said the president believes "now more than ever is the time to act," indicating White House complicity in the push for higher gas prices. Attempting to impose new burdens on American families struggling in a buckling economy in hopes of mitigating an unproven climate theory says a lot about the O Force's warped priorities.

    The only pumps the Obama team and their allies in Congress like are the ones pumping our green tax dollars to their pals and donors in the "renewable energy" racket of the jolly Green Giant with the big carbon footprint: Al Gore.

    Interesting. The prices were higher in 2007 around here than they are today. What were they blaming for the price increase back then? Take a look at those numbers from 2008! Wow! Thats a shocker! I wonder why the Heritage Foundation didn't remind us all who had the reins in those years?

    What were they blaming the high prices on in '06 07' 08'? It wasn't the "green" thinking.

    The same spectators that drive the price up are the same spectators that will drive the price down according to what the see in the market. Not enough supply to meet the demand then they bet the price will rise.
