Once again, political hot air spikes along with gasoline price

Another year, another spike in the price of gasoline, another round of politicians demanding investigations to get to the bottom of it.

From Fox News:

With gas prices surging to $4 a gallon, one of President Obama’s solution to break the back of rising costs is to have Attorney General Eric Holder form a task force to examine alleged fraud or manipulation of oil markets.

“We are going to make sure that no one is taking advantage of the American people for their own short-term gain,” Obama said to applause at a town hall-style meeting at a renewable energy plant in Reno, Nev., on Thursday.

But commodity analysts are skeptical of the president’s plan.

In other surprising news, the Sun once again rose in the East this morning, and somewhere, a bear used the woods for a toilet.

We’ve been down this well-worn road before:

Senator Boxer “really angry” about free market

Poll: 31% of Americans want President to pump their gas

Econ 101 and “windfall” oil company profits

Democrats were for expensive gas before they were against it

Democrats’ Partisan Gas

Say It With Me: Supply and Demand
