I'm watching the gas prices go up around here again. It is interesting that this is happening in an election year. In 2006 the prices started going down when the election got heated and then kept going down until after the election at which point they went back up.
Do you suppose that those who control the prices saw that dropping them didn't help elect their people so now they are raising them to threaten us to force us to support their guy? Kind of a carrot and stick sort of thing?
Or am I just being paranoid?
