Wait, they're not in power yet...so how does the price of gas work again?
According to the dittoheads who infect this board as well as many others, the Dems have been in power since 2006. And also according to them, the Dems promised lower gasoline prices. I don't agree with either of those assertions, but I'd be remiss not to point out that they have, in fact, delivered. If you accept those premises. And I believe you do

Arrgh, NO ONE has said that high fuel prices helped our economy. But keep in mind that the collapse of the dollar was a prime mover there, which should be amply clear as its partial recovery (along with the overall economic collapse) has brought fuel prices down with a vengeance.

Anyway, I put five real (i.e. primary) reasons for the collapse here:
