    Barack H. Obama should be ashamed of himself for not reacting in a way that helps the average consumer of gas. He seems to be the one who has accepted the higher gas without so much as a blink of the eye.
    Good article

    Bu11$#!t. There is a very simple reason the media isn't playing up the gas price story. In 2008 it was an election year and the president was George W. Bush (R) and in 2011 the president is Barack H. Obama (D). $4/gal gas is still just as painful to the average person's budget, if not more so because of all the other prices going up ($4 lettuce anyone?)
    Here is another difference and why $5/gal gas might be the new standard: in 2008 President Bush opened up domestic offshore drilling and almost overnight oil prices plummeted. Now Obama is tying the hands of domestic oil producers more than ever under the ideology driven pretext of "sticking to big oil" ensuring that oil prices have no where to go but up- so big oil in other countries can make bigger money on our backs.

    Interesting article. Maybe we are like the frog in the kettle when it comes to gas prices?
