    You wouldn't know a communist from conservative, girl. The Fed now has 3 trillion on it's books. He doesn't take food/fuel into account in making his decisions(Quanitative Easing) re: inflation, uses core inflation. So... what happens is asset prices increase(stocks) which helps the very rich, but drives up commodities e.g. food & fuel which hurts the poor and the middle class. Folks(Obama Snake Oil/Lavon/Barlow) like you continue to point the finger at a particular party(Dem/Repub) when it's them that got us in this mess. If you want to see how your politician is going to vote, just look at where they get their money i.e. Lobbyist/PAC! BOTH partys sell out to special interests PERIOD!! Until people see that our current system for electing our representatives is flawed, we will NEVER have representation. Please explain the Gini coeeffcient under either party. How the middle class has shrunk under BOTH partys. How salaries have stagnated/decreased under BOTH partys. True democracy = representation, NOT FOR SALE!!!!!!!

    Prices will continue to go higher. The surge in unrest in the Middle East will continue to increase, and the price of oil will follow. THANK GOD as you know him that the US has finally supported democracy instead of the myopic support of dictators. Imagine the US supporting democracy instead of a dollar. WOW that's a novel idea. At least the rebels in Libya will have a fighing chance. Maybe the polictical establishment here in the US will take a hint and return this country to a true democracy, as opposed to selling out to special interests. It's a shame, but we are not represented much better in DC(BOTH partys) than those folks in the middle east. Over there it's the monarchy that's represented, over here it's the specil interets i.e. lobbyists/PACs. Unfortuneately many folks are unable to grasp the fact that our country is for sale to the highest bidder by BOTH polictical partys. Also, the Fed is causing much of the increases in commodities i.e. food, fuel, etc. Why are y'all so silent about the Fed and QE2, etc.???? Do you even know who he is and what he does??!!

      And to the Republic for which it stands....true democracy? You mean communism? Egypt will be taken over by the muslim brotherhood...islamic take over....just like Iran...So, I am not convinced of the protesters in Libya just yet. Feds? You mean the 1 trillion they monitized? Oh yeah....Nice of them to do that after they had promised not to.

    Well, because we are now in a "conflict" in Libya, Oil has risen up 2 bucks already today. Why on earth are we in another conflict. The US had actually started having a good relationship with the Libya gov. Why are we now trying to overthrow him. Oil prices were starting to drop, and again, our great government does the one thing to make oil go up again. Lavon, please be proud of you savior man. As he told you, change was going to happen, and sadly it has. Vote this crook out. Lavon, you have any more great idea's?

    No drilling and the prices go up? Hmmm, who would have thought that! And for you that don't want drilling...how do you get around?

    Well, so much for "we`ll clean up the oil spill at no cost to the consumer".

    Tim, the reason it's so high in Greenville is we're a college town and highest population in Pitt Co.! Washington is a small town with less pop.! It's all about location and price gouging, greedy oil people!!
