How much higher does the price of fuel have to get before the all-knowing Democrats admit their "let's end our dependence on foreign oil" is a sham? Demand is down and supplies are up, yet we are paying record prices at the pumps for gasoline and diesel because OPEC controls the price of oil.

The only way to end our dependence on foreign oil and force OPEC to lower its prices is to expand domestic oil exploration and allow the oil companies to build new and larger refineries.
