Guess the US should of started more drilling as far back as 2008.

The cost of living goes up because of bad gov't. Inflation is caused by bad gov't, higher taxes, as taxes go up the standard of living goes down.

It is time to switch to natural gas and convert your cars and trucks to put pressure on the Government to force oil and or gas companies to offer CNG everywhere.

The Republicans won't do anything to fix oil prices. The US is on track to become self sufficient if things are left the way they are. The problem is that oil is a world traded commodity and there are over a billion people in each of China and India that would all like to drive cars.

We need to get to November without going bankrupted. Then put some people in the Congress, Senate and the Oval Office that will have the peoples ear. We the people cannot go on like this. We need leaders that will look out for all of us.

BO is running out of time to get the gas price down for election, you can't screw around with us for most of your term and think we will forget all about it IF gas drops right at election time...
