  1. I recall in the summer of 2008,fuel prices here in Pittsburgh were near or just above $4.00 a gallon. Then by October I was paying $1.67.You heard me correctly, UNDER $2.00 a gallon!!
    Now, my question is, where is the outrage when gas prices have been OVER $3.00 a gallon for about a year now.
    OH, wait a minute, I forgot. Silly me, we have a DEMO-RAT in the White House!
    The Demo-rats have a totally different set of rules than anyone else.
    If we had a Republican in the White House, we would NEVER hear the end of how gas prices are so high and Code Pink and Cindy Sheahan would STILL be yakking about the wars in the middle east.
    Come to think about it…..
    Where is Code Pink and Cindy Sheahan the last 3 and a half years?
