Sympathy for Gas Guzzlers
"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.
