How come, when George W. Bush was president and a barrel of oil was almost $140 and a gallon of gasoline was close to $4 it was his fault, along with his oil buddies, and he was ripped apart for it.

But with oil at $90 a barrel and gasoline at almost $4 a gallon, now, all of sudden President Obama has no control over it and should not be held accountable?

That is so hypocritical and shows that some people are so partisan. I don’t hear any outcry from the media or the left to hold anyone responsible.

So why does everything cost so much? Simply because if it costs more to transport, then it will cost more to buy.
