Misinformation.. What I like to call "Bull$hit spouting off".

I was recently told that gas prices are rising because the Bush administration is a money mongering oil conglomerate, or something close to it. Why do people insist on saying the stupidest ideas that they can crap out of their mouths? Of course, I did not respond to that statement. I have no need to respond to such sheer stupidity. I have no problem with people's opinions. I have problems when people try to claim their opinion as a fact, based on nothing but stupid ideas.

To disprove anyone who thinks the Bush administration is controlling (magically?) gas prices, here are the facts:

Bush administration concenred about gas prices.
"Tight global supplies of crude oil, a recovering U.S. economy and the looming summer driving season mean that gasoline prices are certain to climb higher during the next few weeks, according to EIA (U.S. Energy Information Administration) analysts.

The EIA has also warned that because U.S. gasoline inventories are below normal levels, any problems at a refinery or pipeline may cause supply disruptions and a resulting rise in price.

EIA Administrator Guy Caruso said that the recent rise in wholesale gasoline costs has yet to be fully passed through to motorists"

If you want the companies most responsible for gas prices, look to OPEC, which happens to be controlled by our "allies" who are Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya to name a few.
