TYLER — Back in 2008, when fuel prices were high, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi placed blame.
She said this is what happens when you have two oil men in the White House.
Well, it's a few years later and it looks like the high gas prices summer we had a few years back will be nothing compared to what were are looking at now.
When candidate Obama was trying for the presidency, he said he could fix the high price of fuel. If you have not noticed, Ms. Pelosi has been very quiet on the issue of high gas prices now. And now President Obama doesn't appear to have an answer.
From what I read from news all over the world, right now we have plenty of oil. The refineries are a little short right now because they are exporting oil to OTHER nations and making a profit.
But enough with that.
Why are prices so high and what can we do about it? Both sides of the isle pass the buck. If we can send a man to the moon, we can figure this out.
We need to really know what's causing the prices of fuel to be this high when there is so much available in the world and on U.S. territory.
Shame on any politician who tries to demagogue this. It's to the point now folks we need to find the problem.
Fix the problem, not politicize it.
Even Republican Paul Ryan says it may be time to pull the oil companies subsidies. But, this will not happen until we stop the political dog and pony show and think like American's.
We need to ask more from politicians who are just trolling for a sound bite for TV and re-election.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
