I don’t know if it’s the same all over, but here in the SF Bay Area gas prices started going up immediately after the Republicans got hammmered in last Tuesday’s elections and now, just a week later, are up 12 cents per gallon. Oil men in the Administration and the big oil companies lowering gas prices before the elections to help the politicians who are in their pocket? Oh, that’s crazy talk, you say. It’s just a coincidence.
And ironic, too, that Prop 87 (the oil tax that opponents warned would raise your gas prices at the pump if it passed!) failed, yet up go those gas prices, 5% in just one week! But, hey, it’s just a coincidence. There’s no collusion here. Stop being paranoid.
