Oil prices and gasoline

Oil prices and gasoline prices on the stock market have not increased to cause this.
Its another case of greed.
OPEC has said they will cut back on production to drive the price of oil up to $70.
Obama where are you, and what about your promises of change.

Yeah, Obama, where's our

Yeah, Obama, where's our change? C'mon, you've been in office almost a month and still haven't rid us of our dependence on oil? I mean, how long does it take, man? Palin would have singlehandedly delivered all the oil in ANWR by now, if she were in office. She also would have reprimanded those silly OPEC guys so they would stop using their oil monopoly to guide global prices. You know, Mr. President, we aren't asking too much, just that you change our entire energy economy in the period of three weeks. Sounds pretty reasonable to us well-informed voters.
