    Then you'd expect gasoline to be at $1.00 / gallon here at re-election time to help get him re-elected. But it's at $2.00/ gallon.
    How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

    How are oil companies going to make more money by charging less for their gas?
    If the superheat ain't right it ain't charged right.

    Heinz made 8.4 billion in rev last year selling
    you tomato paste and corn syrup

    Kerry is getting a piece of that.

    If the ketshup isn't good you can get
    Edwards to sue Heinz for 50 million.

    It is a ketchup conspiracy.
    I heard they are going to drop the price of ketchup so Kerry can get elected.
    They were also talking about giving away salsa if you register as a dem.

    By raising it after he's re-elected.

    My point is....libs are saying Bush is part of and owned by big oil. If this were true, they would help him get re-elected by having low gas prices now.

    Since it's only a few months til the election and prices are high....that shows how little influence and control there is between the president and the oil industry.

    Actually the idea is very common in a "supply and demand" environment.
    If the price were to decline demand will go up and as long as the supply can keep up prices will stay stable.
    If more product is bought the profit ratio will increase as long as each unit is sold at above manufacture cost.

    The problem is that gas is a neccesity and not a luxury item.
    People, usually can't decide not to purchase the product so as to drop demand in any appreciable amount.
