Even the conservative New York Post says so (although Crudele, to be fair, voted for Obama, but he's no knee-jerk liberal, either).
Why is there a surplus of oil, and high gas prices? For the same reason that there's a surplus of corporate cash, but high unemployment. The 1% will do ANYTHING to get rid of America's first black President. Even destroy America.
Don't let them get away with it. Go hybrid. Carpool. Walk or pedal to the store. Use mass transit. AND vote Democratic. Maybe it'll drive them so crazy, it'll destroy them instead of the rest of us.
Real patriots can only hope.
