      Price of gas going up and who stands to profit? Oil companies? How about the US Government with the taxes being collected? Gee, how many saw that coming.. Sure wasn't the MEDIA!!

        The federal government, and state and locals too, would would make a whole lot more money on royalties from drilling on public land and offshore than they ever would in taxes.

      I knew there was a reason why gas prices were rising. I just couldn't figure out what was happening. There is plenty of supply, so what is the cause of the rise? I know the Obama administration wants the price up, but how are they doing it. The free market is no longer a free market, they seem to be controlling a lot of if. Please explain. Thank you Glenn

      well, it doesn't make sense. all this gas and oil we're exporting yet our costs are high? Lots of corruption! Energy independence is the answer, fuels cost and energy efficient for today is the solution. The government has to be behind it or they would recognize coherency and make sure something was done.

      Foo Man Chu, the bicyclist (and Chinese Energy Moron) doesn't understand energy in any form, or why Americans should have it. Fortunately, his tenure will be ending before February of 2013.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
