result #53429 - WHICH PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WILL RESULT IN LOWER GAS PRICES?
You figure gas and oil prices would be lower with Bush and all his energy cronies running the show.
With new resources becoming available via pipelines through Afghanistan and Iraq, oil should be plentiful these days.
You don't think Halliburton and Enron would gouge the American public and pocket the profits, do you?
First of all gas prices won't be anywhere near 1.30 ever again. The demand for oil has irreversibly increased in China and other places. But I think Kerry will keep it more in check since he won't be afraid to go after some of the oil companies for collusion. Unless you believe its a coincidence that these companies are showing record profits while Bush is in office. More importantly Kerry will work faster to develop some of the new energy technologies to slowly reduce our dependence on oil.
Back in '98, gas prices where I live were around .90/gallon. That'd be nice. It'd help the economy too.
In case you hadn't noticed, there's an international oil shortage and an environmental crisis. We pay over $7 a gallon in the UK and rightly so. So should you. Cars could be run with equal power, much cheaper and almost totally cleanly on vegetable oil but most of the west was forced into agreements that ban the use of such fuel by the US government as it would damage US exports.
Simply put, oil comes from foreign markets. Bush does a good job at destroying international relations while Kerry wants to mend relations. You figure it out.
Bush and cheney are former oil men in it for profit over the people. The answer is obvious.
Buy a Hybrid! They are not slow (mine goes 100 mph and has more acceleration than a typical 4 cylinder). They are the necessary intermediate step towards greener energy. They are practical and here to stay--embrace it now while there are still tax benefits!
Gas prices will continue to rise as world supply decreases. No one said getting off the oil drug would be easy, but when Fortune magazine starts writing editorials about the oil problem, you can rest assured there is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed and solved. I think it's pretty funny that the reason we sacked Iraq was oil, yet it costs much more oil than we receive (or plunder) to maintain constant ship deployments and to fuel our vehicles of war. But what would I know about ship deployments? We have to keep our country safe from those DANGEROUS Iraqis and their WMDs.
neither president will result in lower gas prices no one person could control all the gas in america
Neither. Gas prices will still suck.
