    Gas prices go up and down, not doubt about that. Oil companies are fucking us. Since Obama has been in office, prices have risen consistently...doubling in less than 4 years.
    You're rigt the oil companies are fucking us but gas doubled worse with Bush than Obama.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Gasoline prices declined for the 70th straight day, falling below the $1.87 per gallon mark, according to a national survey of credit card swipes at gasoline stations.

    The national average fell 1.7 cents, sinking to the lowest level since Jan. 27, 2005, according to motorist group AAA. Over the last 70 days gas prices have plummeted 52%.
    The gas price was low because the economy was going down the tubes at the time. When demand is weak (or when expected demand is weak) oil prices tank. And not just oil. All commodities tanked. I mean, do you really think there was some type of innovative Bush gas policy that brought the price of gas down from 4 dollars in July to 2 dollars in November in a matter of months? No, it was the weak economy that did that. Plus most of the recent oil price increases this past decade have very little to do with US policy and more to do with the demand from emerging economies.

    And guess what. The dollar was going up when the 2008 crash happened. What good did that do? If anything it made things worst.

    Gas prices can take wild swings due to global demand and speculation. I do not doubt that. It happend during the Bush years. Gas rose like $.40/gal during Bush's first term. His second term when he took office it was like $1.80-$1.90/gal. When Obama took office it was almost exactly the same amount. Were there swings during these years? Yes. But it always came back down. Now, we are used to $3.50/gal or more and have been for several years. Obama is not addressing this. In a funny twist...Obama made a campaign stop at a texas gas station in 2008 during his campaign, made sure there were plenty of cameras there and blamed Bush for high gas prices. But, now Obama can do nothing and takes no blame for anything...he inhereted every problem.

    Apparently, Hostess is not dead. The union has decided to re-think thier stupidity and talk to management about a possible resolution.

    Did he at least donate some of it, or was he selfish like I'm expecting and hog it all for himself?
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    Hell, I don't know. I read that even though they went on strike, the union never formally rejected the contract. The judge stated that he did not understand why they even went on strike or some shit. I know one thing for sure...they were making too much dough though that's for darn sure. Get it? Making too much dough...? Kind of a play on words there referring to...forget it.

    People are selling twinkies on e-bay for hundreds of dollars. Imagine how pissed the buyers will be if Hostess doesn't die.
    Your back's to the wall, that's protocol;
    It's sequestering your spirit, misleading us all.
