[Video] Obama Starts Task Force to Investigate Why Gas Prices are Rising

By @ibtimes on

Good news folk - President Obama has created a new task force to investigate why gas prices are going up.  Normally our political leadership drags the oil executives up to Capital Hill to shake their fist as them for a public show (while receiving lobbyist money after CSPAN is turned off), so this is a new tactic.  I was giggling quietly to self during this entire NBC Nightly News video because not one mention was made of the falling dollar or The Bernank.

p.s. Someone please correct Brian Williams - he characterized the economy as in recession.  Brian the recession ended June 2009 - rejoice.
