The real question for our politicians is why do we in Canada ( 2nd largest oil reserve in the WORLD) pay more that $1 more per US gallon than the lovely US of A does??? Guess where that oil came from in the first place.
Just like we pay more the cars that were built here in the first place.
Same goes for Hydro Electricity, Lumber, food, on & on...........

The much bigger issue is what that $5 a gallon does to EVERYTHING else we consume. Hold on to your jock straps boys and girls (hey, it's a new world out there), it's gonna be a rough ride. But at least Obama's oil buddies are making out big time. Oooops, sorry...wrong party in power for that story line.
