From the “It Doesn’t Matter What You Think” Department

Tuesday, USA Today reported that 42% of those they polled think the Bush Administration is behind the fall in gas prices. They obviously believe that the government controls prices, in the absence of any evidence of any kind.

Presidential spokesman Tony Snow said it well:

White House spokesman Tony Snow addressed the issue Monday, telling reporters that “the one thing I have been amused by is the attempt by some people to say that the president has been rigging gas prices, which would give him the kind of magisterial clout unknown to any other human being.”

“It also raises the question, if we’re dropping gas prices now, why on earth did we raise them to $3.50 before?” Snow said.

Those in need of REAL reasons for the decline should visit Paul at Newshound, who did a quite thorough job.
