I for one am sure happy with these prices (compared to where they were.)
But look at Laurieaw's comment:
Lower gas prices are a stay of execution - if the current pattern of doing little to nothing during these breaks continue, things will get worse when higher prices return
There's alot of truth to that statement and has been the pattern for the last 7 or so years.
Take a steady, large jump to higher prices and take a smaller jump back.
There are so many conspiracy theories out there now that anyone can plant a suggestion and it becomes accepted as fact. Every concevable story is believed by many and can get pretty rediculous
as I've recently read how GWB is keeping the flow if illegals coming so they can secretly inject Mexican tomatos with a special vote GOP drug syrum to be consumed around the country.
No telling how far this stuff will escalate as now they have a movie about shooting the president.
Funny why I'm always suprised and shocked about these things?
Anyway keeping with the title of this thread I think good times always favor the sitting party, while not so for the other. The party which wants to become elected will always try to turn a positive into a negative whether it's Republican or Democrat.
Personally I think one party does a better job with that, which brings me back to my conspiracy comment. Too bad it also serves to divide this country.
