I see you're missing Hugo Chavez. Chavez controlled market prices like you are proposing in Venezuela. You identify with Marxist principles more than you're letting on in here. You want to do away with the idea of Free Market.Any one,even a Communist party candidate, that brings down the price of gas to $2.00 is a winner!!
American gas prices is generally set by Arabs from OPEC, more than half the Oil found in America is shipped to foreign countries for sale, to compete with the Arabs's pricing at pricing the Arabs and Venezuela set.
