From a guest Commentator:
I live in the Greater Bay Area of Northern California. Today, I paid $3.79.9 for a gallon of gas!
I hear on the news that the average gas price per gallon is at $3.20, nationally. The disparity in price in Northern California from the rest of the nation has always been a bitter pill to swallow in these parts. But this is not my point.
I also hear on the news that gas prices are projected to rise to between $4. and $5. nationally by Memorial Day! These prices will naturally be higher in the Bay Area.
So, here's my point. When the Bush Administration invaded Iraq and killed Saddam Hussein in the last decade, this was the beginning of the destabilization in the Middle East.
Today, the entire Middle East is blowing up and taking gas prices with them. UP!
