The first big holiday weekend for traveling is here. Gas prices are higher than they need to be because our Republican Congress will not allow any rules on "speculation" with Wall Street investment firms.
The speculators have caused gas prices to increase by 75 cents per gallon.
The Democrats want to put rules on speculating, the Republicans want to allow speculating. The motoring public pays at the pump for this do-nothing Congress.
If you vote your pocket book, you will vote to retire this speculating Congress. To be fair, there are Democrats who are "for" speculation that the lobbyists for big oil have bought their vote with campaign money for their re-election. Don't you just love our system of government where money dictates any laws that are passed? Of course, I'm being sarcastic about our government, but it's better than crying about it.
"Pay at the pump" means we motorists are helping the poor congressional lawmakers to be re-elected.
Drive safe, Congress needs the money!
Ronald K. Jones
