Political: True or false: Gas prices are high because Obama is an uppity black.man.
Hmmm....I'm guessing that one will be a brain teaser.
"What should the price of oil be if left to conventional supply and demand market fundamentals? Canada's the largest supplier of imported oil to the United States, which now actually produces more than half of the oil it consumes. Production and delivery costs for a barrel of oil from Canada are about $75 a barrel. The market-fundamentals cost for a barrel of oil is in that ballpark; above that, speculation sets the prices.
"It's as simple as that," said Gheit, who has testified before Congress and called for regulatory limits on speculation in commodities markets.
Historically, financial speculators accounted for about 30 percent of oil trading in commodity markets, while producers and end users made up about 70 percent. Today it's almost the reverse."

so pre-2008, when gas went up at the pumps.... it wasnt Bushs fault?
or it was bushs fault then, but now that the cost is up under obama, there is this whole new formula that makes it someone elses fault?
pretty fucking convenient.
because i dont recall all this speculator, supply and demand jibberish under Bush, i do recall "impeach Bushco" when gas was around $2.40.
where are those ass hats?

"Florida Drivers Shelling Out Nearly

He's an uppity half white man and that is the reason gas prices are high.

@ From the right: That's a bear cat isn't it?
Why didn't you say something?

Wasn't oil about $20 bucks a barrel more when it hit these levels in the past?
It may not be Obama's fault, but it is his dream.

in 2008 it was Bush's 'failed policies' that led to high gas prices.
That has changed now?? Interesting.

B.O. wants gas prices to continue to increase so he can now hand out gas vouchers to the under achievers, oops, I mean less fortunate just like food stamps.
Its just another way to buy votes.
I'm joking of course but it wouldn't surprise me if it did happen.

Funny how in 2008 when oil was $147 a barrel gas was priced the same as now. I agree these speculators should have to physically take posession of oil. The banks are borrowing at 0% including GS whos not a bank and using to trade in oil.
Funny how when news channels interview people at the pump theyre not white. Funny theyll still vote for Barry Chavez
