This is why oil needs competition. Right now there is no real alternative and until than we can point the finger at everything but ourselves. This nation put a man on the moon yet it is more important to argue to healthcare while filling up at 4+ dollars a gallon. Hydrogen and Algae are out there and have been proven scientifically as alternative sources of energy. Makes you wonder who's cheating who?

First the speculation regarding prices, the the price hike. Looks like a lot of folks are in on the conspiracy to raise fuel prices.

High gas prices are mainly driven by speculation. We go to war with Iran, that means the Straight of Hormuz is blocked. Where do you think we get our oil from?!

I have pay for Cheneys heart, these conservatives like to forget about that secret meeting Cheney and the oils companies had! I wonder how much of the current price increase can be tied to that meeting?
