ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the issue regarding the high gasoline prices in the U.S. According to the author, President George W. Bush depends on public to embrace his drilling-equals-relief scam, while Congress construct an argument to desperate Americans that drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska will do nothing to help the addiction to oil. The author suggests that putting more oil on the open market will ease the problem until the U.S. dollar return to form.
