what value has the DOE added to the u.s. economy?
where is this independence?
the only major change i have seen was president Obama dictating a higher CAFE from automakers as a part of the "bailout" arrangement. that did NOT come from the DOE!
ethanol, wind power, et al are not doing a thing for us except raising our out of pocket costs .
i ANTICIPATE AND EXPECT your comments in reply.
If anything the gubment will look at the stations for violating anti trust laws. You make it sound like price fixing not price gouging.
