When the Democrats can find the time.

It would be nice if they could get some of the oil company execs to make a trip to the Capitol to testify under oath why the gas prices *really* are as high as they are. When I filled up my tank last Monday afternoon the price was $2.56 a gallon at the BP across the street from where I work. I just looked out the window at their sign and nearly had a heart attack. It's $2.74 right now. That's an $.18 rise in 7 days. Take a look at the performance of Exxon stock over the last 3 years and you'll know where your paycheck has been going:

I guess that no one in the White House could have foreseen that gas prices would be this high. That's the usual dog ate my paper excuse that they give.
