Did you know that “Wall Street speculators” caused gas prices to increase by 89 cents per gallon? ┬áNeither 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.
