    You're right, It's going to be a long 4 years.. On the gas prices, Here, too, the prices are going insane again.
    Check out this web site. GasBuddy.com - Find Low Gas Prices in the USA and Canada

    Down the left side of the page is a gas "Temperature" Map.
    USA National Gas Temperature Map - GasBuddy.com
    It is pretty revealing on the prices here in the midwest.

    I don't see why everyone is surprised at gas prices going up at the start of Summer. They've done so for as long as I can remember and I'm and old guy. Think back and you'll remember this is not affiliated with who's in office just the start of heavy travel season.

    Just wait for the global warming charges to be implemented...then the prices will go really high!

    I agree that it has nothing to do with who is in office. However, once we get Cap & Trade rammed down our throats it is going to get a lot worse.

    Actually it partially does, MR Obama put a stop to new exploration that Bush had approved to help with shortages. So yes Obama is partially to blame for the rise

    Why should the government intervene with the price of gasoline when they’re making 50%, in taxes, on a gallon?

    Sorry but that's simply not true. Individual states average higher taxes than the U.S. tax as shown:

    It's also not true that allowing more drilling would stop summer increases in gas cost. Cost is set by OPEC not the U.S. While we sometimes like to blame our government for everything bad, it's not always their fault.

    Last years major price jumps had absolutely nothing to do with OPEC but rather US greed speculation on the price of gas. Our commodities market drove the price up nearly 1.50 per gallon. Bush opened up areas offshore and Alaska to new exploration and the next day the price dropped 40.00 per barrel
