Where is the OUTRAGE?: Second Largest Weekly Gas Price Increase Since 1990
According to the EIA, this week we have seen the second largest Gas Price increase since 1990:
"The national average retail price for regular grade gasoline on Monday, February 28, was $3.38 per gallon, an increase of 19 cents per gallon from the previous Monday, according to EIA's weekly Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update. This was the second largest one-week increase since EIA began tracking weekly retail gasoline price data in 1990. The only week posting a larger one-week increase was in September 2005 when retail prices rose sharply due to Hurricane Katrina.
This is the highest weekly national average retail price with a February calendar date since EIA began tracking weekly price data in 1990."
Remember when Bush was in Office and the Progressives were claiming that since Bush was in Bed with the Oil Companies he actually created higher gas prices?
So Where is the OUTRAGE now?
