How nice of you to blast the oil companies for profiting from a situation of someone else's creation. You know that if you were to put pressure on the CFTC to complete their rules making, including necessary limitations to trading physical product only, you would have a greater effect on gas prices than anything else you can do. Sure you would probably lose half of the Billion dollars you need for your re-election. The upside is that when the prices drop, if you and your people get out of DC and explain it to the voters, you will gain more votes than that half a Billion could buy. Only more jobs or declaring an end to your shitty little war in Afghanistan would get you more votes.
