It's 5.50 near Death Valley and other vacation spots and even in Nevada. It drops to 3.80 in Vegas. It's 4.45 and 4.29 in the high desert Victorville and Barstow California. This is unheard of. I'm voting for Romney!!! Dayum!!! It may be 6 bucks a gallon in Baker Ca. Like Obama said, don't worry about it, the rest of the world is paying 10 bucks a gallon. Oh one more thing, Senator Harry Reid Nevada, said there are NO illegal aliens working or living in the state of Nevada.

It really shows how the public school system has failed us when people believe that the POTUS can control fuel prices or the nations monetary policy.

So here is a lesson for the sheeple. Oil is a commodity traded on the world market. The production of oil is controlled by a carter called OPEC. OPEC along with the fluctuations in the spot market, geopolitical concerns, and supply line issues affect fuel prices for the end user.

The average price for a gallon is still cheaper than the inflation adjusted high during the Bush years.

The US refines the vast majority of the worlds petroleum products. In 20122 the largest export product for the US was petroleum products.

Inflation. Inflation has a big impact on fuel prices. You see, the Federal Reserve Note is worth less than it was 10 years ago, in fact it has less buying power than it had 10 months ago. This is primarily because the Federal Reserve (a private bank) that lends their private currency to the US government issues these debt notes and essentially has them printed at will. The latest infusions of fed liquidity were QE1 and QE2. Every time the fed reserve does this, it inflates the money supply and thereby devalues all FRN's in existence.

So the issue is deeper then Obama, deeper than ones shallow left-right paradigm. To be certain Romney will do just like Regan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama have done which is essentially nothing to curb the corrupting Keynesian monetary policy of the fed reserve.

You will see $10 a gallon gas when we attack Iran which is the first thing on Romney's to do list and on Obama's list of chores as well.

Look, educate yourself then share with your friends and family. Get beyond the elites hegemonic tactic of divide and conquer. We are all in this together and the sooner one figures that out the least likely are they to sound like an
ID 10-T when posting on the internet.

Go here and watch the crash course. Then start securing your future which includes stacking tangible assets like gold and silver.

Oregonians suck. Who would hire one. Job growth is very weak in comparison to the size of the metro area in Portland.

Why?

Obviously because no one wants to hire lazy, freakin', idiotic, useless Oregonians. There has been no hope or change in Oregon since the 1800s.
