Gas prices

Gallup:

PRINCETON, NJ -- The average price of gasoline across the country is currently $2.44 per gallon, down from a high of $3.00 per gallon this summer. The American public, however, remains relatively pessimistic about gas prices, and most Americans do not believe they will continue to decline. While 4 in 10 Americans believe gas prices will be lower by the end of the year, the majority predict prices will be the same or higher. Men -- particularly those aged 55 and older -- Republicans, Midwesterners, Southerners, and those in households earning at least $30,000 annually are most optimistic that gas prices will be lower by the end of the year.

Prediction: They'll continue to decline until Election Day, after which they'll rise, with the increase attributed "holiday travel" (absent some geopolitical or environmental provocation).

    Amen, Spook. And the lame ass media is loathe to make the obvious connect between midterms, gas prices and the real axis of evil- Georgie (porgie) Bush and Dick (Haliburton) Cheney.
