Sympathy for Gas Guzzlers

From the front page of today's New York Times:

"Nobody has any sympathy for oil companies on Capitol Hill right now," said Representative Jack Kingston, Republican of Georgia and vice chairman of the House Republican Conference. "You talk to someone driving to work in an F-150 pickup and paying $75 to fill up his tank, and everybody's on his side."

But in reality, higher prices are not being caused by the oil companies. They are being caused by all the people driving gas guzzlers to work - the people Congress has so much sympathy for.

Have you ever looked at a map of gas prices in the United Stated based on county? Have you compared it to the results of a presidential election based on a precinct map?
