Driving into work today, the Radio People threw out a teaser that Pres Obama was “finally going to do something about those high gas prices!”
Ho boy. I knew it wasn’t going to be anything useful in the long-term (like opening up some drilling sites or building a nuclear plant) but though it might be a short term gesture. You know, release some of the strategic petroleum reserve,something like that.
Nope! “A presidential task force to investigate fraud and price gouging.” Because, as the Radio People gleefully informed me, all you have to do is drive by a gas station and you know SOMEONE’s ripping you off!!!
I am sure this new commission will be every bit as successful as the Debt Commission was.
In other words, break out the bicycles!!
