$5 Fuel By Mid-March?

My per-gallon prices for diesel:

Date $/Gal
2/14/12 3.899
2/23/12 4.294

A dumb linear regression shows that I’ll break $5/gallon by mid-March. The good news for #OccupyResoluteDesk is that high energy costs are only the President’s fault in a Republican administration. And why is that evil raaaaacist zombie George Bush doing this to our President? Some dynastic ploy to get Jeb Bush elected? Bush is clearly Obama’s kryptonite.

Prompted by Instapundit. More at Ed Driscoll’s.

    It’s all part of the plan, but someone forgot to tell Comrade Barack that it’s hard to control the timing – it wasn’t supposed to do this until after the election. 

    Wonder what that gal who was so ecstatic that Obama was going to help pay her bills thinks now?

    Probably on welfare with a free cell phone, volunteering with the campaign, though . . .

    During the Carter maladminstration, an editorial cartoon captioned “Carter’s Gas Ration Stamp” showed grinning Jimmy holding a dollar bill. Before him, we had been paying somewhat less than a dollar a gallon. The came the Iran hostage thingee. It played a large part in Jimmah’s defeat by Reagan.

    A five dollar bill with BHO would work this year. . .

    What all the fools who vote for Democrats need to realize about high fuel prices is – it doesn’t have to be this way. 

    And for anyone who wants gas prices to be like those in Europe, MOVE TO EUROPE!  Leave the rest of us alone.

    Are you paying too much for gas in liberal parts of the country? Then QUIT! VOTING! FOR! DEMOCRATS! you idiots.  Otherwise you’re getting exactly what you voted for, so shut up.

    Yeah, I’m pretty ticked off about it.  I suspect I’m not the only one.
