Expecto Petroleum

A very cogent explanation of the basic factors that go into gas prices, and how we can affect them. Sometimes it seems like everyone expects the President to have the power to come in and protect us all from Evil High Gas Prices, but in truth the consumers (collectively) have more power than he does.

MORE 4/26: Here's another article explaining why gas prices are high, only with smaller words (it's directed at Bill O'Reilly). Link via Right Wing News.

Now if only we could get Doug Wright to learn a little something about gas prices. I love his show, but when it comes to gas prices, he's just not packing a full sea-bag; he thinks (like many people do) that high prices have only to do with oil company profits. It never ceases to amaze me how otherwise intelligent people can lose all rationality over the price of gasoline.
