Just a reminder


Leo Turner’s letter, printed April 13, laments the loss of hope for America’s enconomy, citing numerous times that “the Democrats struck again …” and blaming the rise of gasoline prices to $4 per gallon in 2007 on Democrats.

I would remind Turner that it is not Democrats who control the price of gasoline, but OPEC; and the high price of oil (hence gasoline) in 2007 was a direct result of President George W. Bush’s war, not the Democratic Congress.
