I find it interesting. Since the election in November the price has jump up from $2.17 to $3.54 a gallon. I wonder if there is a correlation there.

Exactly! The same every year around Spring or summer. And when hurricane season comes, they will blame the increase in gas prices on that too, always an excuse.

It doesn't matter who is in office at the time for the gas prices to go up.

Gas prices going up are the doings of Puerto Rican gangs in South Freemansburg...!

This is true. The problems occured when Bush got involved in Iraq and we are still paying. If Bush was president now we would have troops in Libya and gasoline would much more expensive.
