BOHICA!

Bend over, here it comes again... Gas prices are on the rise again, reaching more than three dollars a gallon in California, New York and Washington, D.C. Prices are now at the highest rate since 1981, the year of the Iraq-Iran war, and are only expected to rise. Some experts are even predicting five dollars a gallon by the end of the summer. Now I'm not smart enough to understand all that supply-demand stuff, or how the problems in Iran and Nigeria are affecting the stock market, but I do know that oil companies are making record profits these days. And it seems to me that Iraq should be doing a lot more to ease this burden, since it was our troops that liberated their country when they didn't have the guts to do it themselves. And a special thanks to all the environmentalists and lobbyists that have made these prices possible. Good thing our government has a plan for such contingencies. We do have a plan, right?
