Did you know that “Wall Street speculators” caused gas prices to increase by 89 cents per gallon? Neither did we.
Odd, no one seems too worried about the undue influence of speculators whenever the price of gas falls.
Anyway, here’s some background on H.R. 2003.
Update: we asked Rep. Edwards where she got that 89 cents figure from, and she kindly responded.
