Gas price gouging

So George Bush and the GOP Congress has finally woken up to the fact that gas prices are rising faster than their credibility is sinking.

What do you think was their first clue? Lee Raymond's retirement package? (I'm sure they were jealous they haven't been able to arrange similar pay days).

Why has the price of gasoline risen even faster than the price of a barrel of oil? Iran saber rattling? The failure to bring the Gulf Coast refineries on line quickly enough? Or just plain old-fashioned greed, the kind of which the oil companies invented?

Inquiring minds want to know that -- and what Bush and the GOP's grandstanding will accomplish.

Bet you the price of a fill-up the answer is nothing -- except higher profits for the gougers.
