Manipulating Gas Prices For Votes

Notice how gas prices are coming down as we get closer to election day? Isn't that a coincidence? We have an oilman in the Oval Office and another as VP, gas prices still remain much higher than when Bush took office but you're gleeful at finding a station with regular unleaded at $2.35. That's still 80 cents a gallon higher than in 2001. Oil companies are making profits per quarter that rival some third world countries annual GNP's.

If ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, Hess and the others can sell gas at these prices in an attempt to rescue their beloved leader they can do so year round. One side effect, go lock in these prices for your home heating oil NOW. I guarantee things will change quickly November 8th.
