When Clinton was President a barrel of Sweet Crude oil was $10.00 and we had a Food for OIl program with Iraq. Then when bush came in it was 20 bucks for a barrel. now it is almost 75.
Bush and his Cronies, with Haliburton are making good money on inflation of everything including gas.
Halliburton the world's largest oil field services company, is already under fire for allegations of overcharging the Pentagon for fuel. The company's European subsidiaries sold spare parts to Iraq's oil industry, despite U.N. sanctions. Halliburton and its subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root have reaped huge profits from the rebuilding of Iraq. A dozen truckers told Knight Ridder that Halliburton sent them back and forth across Iraq with empty trailers more than 100 times.
Shit our Vice President Dick Cheney was the CEO of Halliburton,.
Bush himself is a former Texas oilman. 1984. Harken Energy bought Spectrum in 1986, and Bush was given a seat on Harken's board.
Condeelza Rice is on the Board of Directors for Cheveron, and they have named one of the company’s tankers after her. In addition to sitting on Chevron’s board, she is considered one of President Bush's closest confidants. She played a central role in formulating and executing the administration's strategy in response to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the U.S. invasion of Iraq..
There is no Oil shortage in the mideast. Bush has pissed off all the Arabian countries, including kuwait, and now they have Cut our Supply, causing us to have a higher demand, and its bringing up gas prices.
So if you believe Bush has nothing to do with higher gas prices...BULLSHIT.
