    Default Bush is loving the high gas prices

    Here's an article on Bush's reaction of the high-gas prices (that are slowly geting closer to $3 on an average).

    Bush Says Little Can Be Done About High Gas Prices

    (AP) SAN JOSE As oil prices hit a record, drivers worried about $3-a-gallon gas and politicians feared the impact on elections, President Bush on Friday acknowledged the pain but seemed resigned to being able to do little about it.

    "I know the folks here are suffering at the gas pump," the president said while promoting his competitiveness initiative at the Silicon Valley headquarters of Internet networking company Cisco Systems Inc. "Rising gasoline prices is like taking a _ is like a tax, particularly on the working people and the small-business people."

    But to address the immediate problem, Bush offered only a pledge that "if we find any price gouging it will be dealt with firmly."

    Bush said that lowering America's dependance on foreign oil imports will help reduce the country's vulnerability to global oil price fluctuations. On Saturday, the president was pushing his proposals to boost spending to develop alternative energy sources, particularly hydrogen-fueled cars.
    So basically he's tellling the American people to shut up and get used to the high prices. Hmmm, geee let's flashback to Jan 26th, 2000:
    CNN - Aired January 26, 2000 - 7:00 p.m. ET

    BUSH: No, I don't. I think I agree with the energy secretary that the strategic petroleum reserve is meant for a national wartime emergency.

    What I think the president ought to do is he ought to get on the phone with the OPEC cartel and say we expect you to open your spigots. One reason why the price is so high is because the price of crude oil has been driven up. OPEC has gotten its supply act together, and it's driving the price, like it did in the past. And the president of the United States must jawbone OPEC members to lower the price.

    And if in fact there is collusion amongst big oil, he ought to intercede there as well.

    I used to be in the oil business. I was little oil -- really little oil. And so I understand the -- I understand what can happen in the marketplace.

    I think it's very important for us, though, to recognize that our country better become less dependent on foreign crude. That's why I am for the exploration of ANWR. That's why I'm for the exploration of natural gas, which is hemispheric. It's not subject to price.

    In the meantime, I support the congressional delegation here in New England attempt to fund LIHEAP, which is that low-income heating assistance program.

    BROWN: Let me follow up by asking what pressures -- specifically what pressures should be brought on OPEC nations to lift those production curbs?

    BUSH: Well, we've got good relations with a lot of members of OPEC. If the president does his job, the president will earn capital in the Middle East, and the president should have good standing with those nations. It's important for the president to explain, in clear terms, what high energy prices will not only do to our economy, but what high energy prices will do to the world economy.

    It is in the Saudis' best interest for the price of oil to mellow out. It's not only in our country's best interests. It needs to be explained to them, it's in their best interests.
    Man, Bush is never consistent. Oh well more fuel (pun) to add to the fire burning down the Republican party.

    I'm getting my car fixed; but with gas in L.A. at around $3.15/gallon right now I've decided to bus it to and from work; I figured out that at the current prices I'll be saving $120 or more a month which i will instead put into a savings account and be my big "Fuck You Bush and your cronies!"

    I don't mind the bus anymore; the people are normal on my line and it only costs $30.00/month and i just sit back and listen to music or read for the ride

    You're lucky. Most people that live outside of cities don't have the luxury of having a mass transit system. Most suburbs and small towns were built around the use of a car, so unless a person wants to walk all the way to another town to get to their job or try to cross a highway to get to the other side of town, they're stuck giving money to the greedy oil hogs.

    There has to be something for us, the public to do about this.

    1,000 days.. all I could think of when I saw that was a book.."The 900 Days..The Siege of Leningrad". That is what it is beginning to feel like...well except for the bombing, shelling, freezing and starvation.
