If I were your former blogging friend who completely toed the liberal line, this might be the place where I'd point out who is in bed with the oil companies and poised to cash in when they get out of office...

...but me, I wouldn't do that...

If you where huh? I know he is and it pisses me off. I just wish someone would do something about all of this. I mean seriously 50 bucks in my car is crazy and the worst of it is...I wasn't even on empty!!!

Yeah, and they say we're headed for $4 a gallon.

I think we can do some offshore drilling here and there and still keep the environment relatively safe if Big Oil doesn't just run over those concerned about keeping a few trees standing. Meanwhile, no matter who we get next - McCain or Obama - I think we'll have better relations with the Mideast and some more oil will trickle our way.

Bush and Cheney are too wrapped up in the oil and war machine to really concern themselves with anything past 2008. Our next prez - GOP or Dem - will have to make lower oil prices a reality, and that might mean (YIKES!) making friends with some of our enemies!

Ironically, we remain friends with Saudi Arabia, our main oil source, even though they were the ones who hit us on 9/11. Imagine that.
