Bush Barrels Ahead

To the Editor:

Re “Hillary on Energy Independence, Making Oil Less Ridiculously Profitable” [posted to observer.com on Nov. 9]:

I remember a few years ago when oil hit $50 a barrel, and I said, “Just wait till Bush gets the price of oil up to $100 a barrel.”

My friends said there was no way oil would ever get to $100 a barrel. But here we are at nearly $100 a barrel.

But this is nothing. Just wait until oil hits $250 a barrel.

Every time Bush says “World War III” or talks about attacking Iran, we get a little closer.
