Driving through deep East Texas this weekend, I noticed the price of gasoline is even higher down there
than it is up here.
Seeing prices like this is startling, especially if you are like me and you have property to care for that is a ways away and you have equipment that takes gas or diesel.
As I drive up and down US 69 with a truck and a trailer, I wondered out loud to my wife how ridiculous it was for those to tell us we need Chevy Volts, which by the way no one is buying, and small cars that cannot get the job down on a a farm.
I was reminded back to 2008, every time the price of gasoline went up a penny those on the left howled that it was George Bush's fault.
He was from Texas and had to be in bed with all the evil oil companies.
Now that gasoline is high again, notice there is no outrage by left-wing opinion writers.
Why are they not concerned with the little guy..like me.
This administration is not a fan for drilling for new oil.
When asked why the Obama administration opposes drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told CNSNews.com that the "drill, baby, drill program" is not going to lead the United States to energy independence.
But here is the deal Mr. secretary, while you guys dream of solar panels and windmills in the future, we have needs right now.
And we have to make out country work right now.
And how about going after all the oil speculators who are bidding for the price of oil that hasn't even been taken out of the ground?
Just asking ?
That's my point of view..what's yours?
