I don't know. Did you start a thread that I missed?

Without looking into it I'd assume that speculators drove up the price of oil in response to the Iraq war. I remember oil companies making record profits at that time. There is probably a connection. But I'm not really concerned with Bush. Except for the Bush/Trickle Down Recession, Bush is just a bad memory.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands. One nation, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.
