Don't let the Bush Bunch blame high gasoline prices on Katrina.

Link below.

"Low recalled that two years ago, energy related costs like gas at the pump or heating oil for homes made up about 4 percent of household budget. That had risen to 5.5 percent prior to Hurricane Katrina and is likely to rise further, he said. "

No, this needs to be a wake-up call that the leftist environmentalists have left us so vulnerable with the stifling regulations which have prevented the biulding of any oil refineries since 1976. With any glitch, we have a shortage. It should be a wake-up call to the 100 or so different formulations of gasoline blend requirements, which stifle refinery efficiency. And it damn sure needs to be a wake up call to override the left and get in gear with more exploration and development. How much crude oil was spilled from any of the oil platforms hit by this hurricane? As far as I know, none. That is a significant accomplishment in itself that ought not be overlooked. Especially in the growing world economy where we are in direct competition with China, as well as others, with a virociously growing appetite for oil. Don't forget the kudo that America should also recieve for the growing efficiency of companies to achieve greater production from smaller amounts of energy.
