Last time Clinton did this it brought the gas prices down a Penny. These fools couldn't run a Fireworks Stand!

The current gas prices are relatively low compared to last year and the past few months. Summer travel has already begun and oil companies seem to forecast their pricing structure based upon future, not CURRENT demand. Retailers will probably take advantage of us though.
Additionally, our oil reserves are a pool generally set aside for natural disasters and war.
I don't get it... It is probably just a campaign ploy......

Hopefully it will break a few of the speculators. Bet they took a bath today. That's where so much of the massive price increases have come from. Plus of course the big oil's reduction of refinery output....currently way less that 80%.
Should have just increased the margin requirements by 50% and instituted a transaction tax on the specuators.

With the exception of the Bin Laden raid this president has taken so long to make decisions that in the end what he decides doesn't matter anyway.
