It matters who wins elections

Informative1 and amusing chart from the office of Republican whip Roy Blunt...

Gas price chart

Of course, while they would never admit it, the Democrats love high gas prices.

  1. It reduces the number of cars on the road, and the pollution associated with it.

  2. It gives them the opportunity to indulge in populist pandering, to wail and moan and demand punishment for the "greedy oil companies."

  3. A crisis! More opportunity for Federal Government intervention in the market!

(h/t Powerline)

1 This is a political document, obviously, and it should go without saying that expecting it to be strictly accurate would be silly. That said, even with the one-sided American mainstream press, it remains astounding that Democratic politicians are allowed to rail about "our dependence on foreign oil" while simultaneously fighting tooth and nail against developing domestic oil or building nuclear power plants, and they don't get laughed out of office...
