According to American Power, gasoline on the Nevada-California border has officially hit $5.00 per gallon in price.
President Obama has vowed to perform an investigation to be sure no gas companies are somehow illegally inflating the price. That'll fix the supply and demand problem for sure. And if it doesn't, then Obama has another practical, immediate solution: develop sources of alternative energy.
Alternative energy is things like windmills, solar panels and sails. Sure, these will fix the problem, when they are perfected in a hundred years or so (if ever). You've heard of "air guitar," well Obama likes to flout "air energy" sources. This is a lot like "air ware" software, when software companies brag about the next killer generation of their computer programs that haven't been written yet.
So President Obama feels your pain at the gas pump, and wants you to know that solar and wind energy sources will relieve your distress, as soon as they are invented, right along with cold fusion, anti-gravity, elf-labor, pixie dust and perpetual motion. Any day now.
