Gasoline Prices Climb for 35th Straight Day

If you ask me, it’s all by design.   Look at it this way, you are the government and you took over a car company and spent mega-bucks on a few crappy hybrids and an electric vehicle that you can’t sell.  How do you unload your crappy products onto the consumer?  Do everything possible to bring up the price of gas, like putting a drilling moratorium on offshore drilling in the gulf, cancelling oil drilling in ANWAR, causing unrest in the middle east, bombing Libya, etc., etc.

Voila!  Problem solved!:  Speculators freak out;  Energy prices skyrocket;   Consumers look for more fuel efficient vehicles;  and, the President goes around giving a bunch of “I feel your pain” speeches, saying snarky little things like, “If you’re complainin­g about the price of gas and you’re only getting 8 miles a gallon, you know… You might want to think about a trade-in.”

As Plankton from Spongebob Squarepants might say, “It’s foolproof!!!”

And, don’t you worry your pretty little head none, Obama will make sure the price of gas drops before the next election…

Gasoline rises a penny to $3.87 per gallon

NEW YORK – Gas pump prices have climbed for 35 straight days even though industry surveys show Americans have started to drive less.

The national average rose by a penny to hit $3.87 per gallon on Tuesday, more than a dollar higher than it was last year. Experts say prices should keep rising for the next few weeks before weaker consumer demand forces prices to drop. “We’re going to see prices keep bumping up for three, maybe four weeks,” energy analyst Jim Ritterbusch said. Eventually less travel will take its toll, Ritterbusch said.

“They’re going to cut back on spending, and that will push gas prices down,” he said. “All that should kick in by June.”

    The devious scoundrels in this administration of our ‘Dear Leader’ are giving each other a big ‘high five’ behind closed doors, this energy debacle and the rising prices that are crippling the working class is just what they have been striving for. As I have said before “what better way to control us then to enslave us economically, so that we become more dependent on the state for even our basic needs”. There will be no need to kick in our doors with government goons or storm troopers, just confiscation of our hard earned wealth by excessive taxation, devaluation through skyrocketing inflation, and a crippling of the economy through draconian anti-corporate and environmental regulation. Welcome to our ‘Dear Leader’s’ Utopian Socialist Workers Paradise.

    Around my area gas is almost $4.00 a gallon. And no doubtly worse in other parts of the USA.

    Funny how the ‘b-oil’ indusrty somehow thinks we can afford thier prices. Pretty soon the ‘common people’ will be taking out thier frustrations on the gas stations and thier owners.

    A no win situation for anyone…

    To control the populace you need to control employment, housing, food and fuel. Seen any issues with any of those lately? Hmmmm, seems only one of those is going down.
