Another of the feel good law that will do nothing. Laws against "Gouging"
is already the law in most states. How can the government do anything to
lower the price, when the governments environmental laws and anti drilling
laws are some of the major reasons that the price is so high in the first
The price of gas at the pump is the result of supply and demand, as every
investigation done by the Congress over the years has shown
The Governor of Pennsylvania wants a new law to 'lower' the cost at the
pump. Typical of all Dimocrates he is proposing another tax to do it. LOL
If you really want to do something to lower the price, buy less and lower
the demand. The fact is Americans are buying more of it than when it was $2
The bill is the "Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act."
I guess the OP is not keeping up with the news.
It is HR 1252. And it passed the house this morning.
And Mike's right. It is feel-good legislation. The President has to
declare an "energy emergency." The legislation doesn't define
"unconscionably excessive," although the act does specify which factors
need to be taken into account in determining that.
Two on topic and intelligent posts today. A new record for Mike.
Now, all we have to do is get Mike to learn how to stop top-posting, to
make thread easier to follow.
