AAA gas report

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

With some fanfare, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today personally released an Energy Commission study he ordered in April to look into high gasoline prices. Two months later, he announced that the commission had discovered an "unusual spike" that saw prices in California jump in late April even while prices elsewhere in the nation were relatively stable.

Schwarzenegger also talked tough: "We'll get to the bottom of this."

The only question is how it took two months for the Energy Commission to determine this information. A daily visit to the American Automobile Association's fuelgaugereport.com could have revealed the same information in real time.

Schwarzenegger investigating oil companies goughing Californians at the gas pump will be like a Chihuahua without teeth nipping at an elephant. Actually Schwarzenegger will spend the summer having dinner with oil company CEO's laughing over French wine. Bob Mulholland, Senior Advisor, Phil Angelides for Governor.

Bush's administration is an oligarchy and at the heart of it are the oil companies. Remember that the first acronym for the Iraq invasion is Operation Iraq Liberation --- O.I.L.

Schwarzenneger will be whatever it takes to get elected but Mulholland is correct. Arnold is a Republican!

Need to find a forum for real antique collectors other than ebay. I am looking to buy some architectural antiques off the site linked but never hear of them.

95 percent accurate
Over the last 25 presidential elections, Ventura County voters have backed the winner 24 times, or over 95 percent of the time. It is one of only a handful of counties in the nation that has been such a predictable bellwether.
