Next step is to use the same thug method of politicking and grant amnesty to the 30 million illegals. Democrats know they are in big trouble this election cycle and next, they need those votes by 2012 to keep heir Obama there. With the peasant mexican class allowed to flood into the U.S. for the purposes of driving down wages and draining services (and eventually vote), the middle class of America is being driven to surfdom by a bill which they cannot afford.

Not really.

America is producing more oil that anyone else in the world today (well a few months ago, more on that later). It is illegal for the US to export it though (there has within 6 months been a little change to circumvent this stupid law). So you have a glut with lowering demand.

On the other side of the world Saudi is continuing to pump oil into the market hoping t bring Russia into bankruptcy and to topple Iran's government. Russia's gas exports to Western Europe play in here too.

So you have a massive glut already here plus Saudi pumping the market even more. Chinese and Indian demand though skyrocketing isn't outpacing the supply. The Chinese economy is stagnant and slowing many economists think.

In America fracking has led to the massive increase in oil production. That's stoping quickly, to make money fracking oil needs to be north of $55. Within two months you're going to see massive layoffs and nothing at this time can stop it. My dad's had to close three plants already this month.

But hey enjoy the cheap gas everyone. It being the price it was 10 years or whatever ago is completely natural.

the trend of giving you less food at the same price will surely keep going. I like how they disguise it with repackaging. Look, new more eco friendly package!
