    Wow, how the sheep have spoken. Monetary policy is not the biggest factor driving prices of oil higher. The real issue is supply and demand with the added geo-political issues in the Middle East whic allow energy futures traders to speculate futures prices higher. Also, the Keystone Pipeline construction would not be complete for nearly 20 yrs, which would provide absolutely nothing in terms of reducing the short term costs of oil, additionally the Obama adminstration to approve construction of portions of the pipe line, the sections that were not approved were not approved by their state leaders, wow respecting states right, who'd thunk?

    Obama's really helped out here...a summer ending with gas prices approaching $4/gallon again. Yet his charisma seems to be keeping him in the Presidential race. As things continue to degrade as we approach the election he'll have a hard time hanging on...

    Should have approved the Keystone pipeline! Millions of jobs and millions of gallons of oil now going to China! Time for change, unless you actually enjoy being unemployed and broke! If not, vote for Mitt Romney!

    How can this be? I thought we had change we could believe in? Gosh, are we headed in the right direction.......? Gas was pricey ALL year long, with no drop for winter, reduced demand, etc. That just shows it isn't a free market commmodity.

    Thanks, current administration.......for nothing.
