Peters Hits Knollenberg on Energy Policy

Ah, the good old days. When George W. Bush took office the price of gas was $1.70. Why in the world does Joe Knollenberg think we'll trust him and his constant companion, George W. Bush on a real energy policy to bring down prices now? I will admit, the Republican "energy plan" has been good for Bush's buddies in the oil industry and have produced record profits.
This is a quote from George W. Bush in 2001.
"I worry about the fact that hard working people are paying high prices at the pump; it concerns me a lot," the president said recently. "I also say we need to build more refining capacity. We need more supply." Isn't that the same thing he said last week? Sounds to me like Joe Knollenberg and George W. Bush need some new material.

Traveling by car these days will cost you more this summer-- at least $1.70 a gallon for gas. That's the average price at the pump this month, up 13 percent from just a year ago.

An estimated 30 million drivers will hit the road for Memorial Day weekend. If each one buys just a gallon of gas, they'll have spent about 51 million bucks. Click here for the rest of the article.
