    You might all be surprised, but guess what? Oil and fuel. It's not the government that controls the prices at the pumps, it's the oil companies. Follow the money!

      Movingout, Obama keeps saying that in the debates, but conservatives will never listen...Under Bush they understood, under Reagan they understood...But Obama is always blamed, it's maddening! Not to mention, just the export fact alone, I mean come on...Republicans would be beating the drum if they had a POTUS who did this!

    President Reagan eliminated the price controls that were originally in place to safe guard price gouging.

      He did, and the prices rose a little every year until 87.

    I believe I read in the newspaper that we have, or will shortly, pass Saudi Arabia as the largest producer of oil in the world.

    Maybe we can help eliminate some of the trade deficit by selling oil and buying all the junky Chinese trinkets we so desire.  Reverse the disgrace of buying Manhattan for a handful of beads, you know.

    Seriously, though, are we exporting more than we import?  Seems that that would be kind of important...

        That's exactly what I was going to say.  I don't think they were cheap paying while they were here though.  wink

          True, not cheap here, but very cheap paying when "exported" to other countries.
