New Conservation Measures
In order to help the Shrubbery meet his conservation goals for gas and oil, my local service stations are having gas free weekends. Of course, some people claim that they aren't selling gas because they have no gas to sell, but we like to think we are conserving so the idiot in the White House can go jetting around the country with his fleet of gas-guzzlers to annoy people trying to help victims.
Let's be clear on this point: the oil companies have been shutting down refineries for a decade. They haven't tried to build any new refineries. The oil companies are responsible for the lack of refineries - not taxes, not regulations, not environmentalists - the oil companies. From the point of view of an oil company, more refining capacity means competition, which results in lower corporate profits.
