You forgot. Oil companies rule the world and some TD members are right there in lock step. Almost as many are lackeys to the gun lobby.

Shame

For someone unemployed who has an interview an hour away, they are basically screwed now. Guess this is like the movie In Time where Obama keeps the poor poor and on unemployment.

Agreed. And yet, somehow, despite your bitching about the other side being hacks, I am willing to bet the farm that you didn't "get used to it" when prices swung under Bush. I'll bet the farm you were in the "Bush is in the pockets of the oil companies and that's why prices are up" crowd.

It's interesting that liberals seem to have just now, in the last 4 years, discovered that gas prices are not controlled by presidents. Kudos to you guys for this recent discovery.

Hey....obama and GM got to convince America to buy them electric "sewing machines" they call cars....so jack up the price of gasoline. Hey obamaheads.....you like paying $ 4.00/$5.00 for gasoline? How about $ 10.00 for a loaf of bread?

The dumbing down of America is complete....the illusion is in place. America loves obama ....as much as the Germans loved Hitler.

Good day!!

Uhh, no? You do realize that Exxon, the largest non-nationalized oil company in the world, only controls like 2% of the market, right? If your premise was that the oil industry controlled the world, then you would be claiming that the governments of oil producing nations run the world, because they have far and away the highest control of oil production. Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, and National Iranian Oil are the only energy producers larger than Exxon and they are directly controlled by the Saudi, Russian, and Iranian governments, respectively.

But then again, governments being in control doesn't fit your agenda, so you can just ignore facts. They aren't too important when it comes to supporting biased opinions.

I'll save your hilarious gun lobby claim for another day. But if you want to look into what a truly powerful lobby can do, look no further than the sugar lobby. They are evil and are destroying the world!

I can no longer afford to go out of the weekends because of gas which means I don't stimulate the economy.

If the current price of gas has you so strapped that you can't afford anything else then that just means that you're poor. Too poor to "stimulate" the economy.

There are people that have had to drain their savings accounts to afford to move to gain employment and or pay for lost healthcare in between job layoffs. Cobra is expensive.

So now grocery and gasoline prices are gutting them with no 'savings' account.

Are you Donald Trump wealthy or do you live in a cave of money?

ZIRP destroys savings. Isn't that the plan?
