You know, I was interested to see how the protest in DC turned out as truckers by the hundreds slowly drove around blowing their horns in protest of the fuel tax. I was actually hoping it would have some results!
Supply and demand rule...so they said in the paper. Nothing but higher prices are in the future. Hillary wants to spend billions on 'alternative' fuel research. Like we have billions for that! The article quotes Bill Clinton as advising keeping more fuel in the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, which right now is at 97 % capacity & constantly adding more fuel at these high prices!
He said if he were Pres. he would release some of that into the marketplace to drive down prices.
Obama disagrees, he doesn't think we have any answers right now. He's thinking bio-fuel, and more efficient cars & trucks. Mr.McCain will give his views in a few weeks....leaning towards hybrid vehicles and alternative fuel. There is no immediate relief in sight for sure. All the time, driving food prices up and up. Its a serious situation for the truckers....and for us. the future is a long way off while we wait and see if those $150 billion research Hillary and Obama want to invest in ....pay off or is money & time down the drain. That's if they make it to the White House. I'm for McCain, of course, now.
