So after I updated that last post, I came across this article, and I must say that I feel a little better about Bush's handling of the oil situation. I'm opposed to releasing the strategic oil reserves as plenty of politicians have called for (I mean, it's not like we're at war or anything...), but halting deposits makes sense, and his relaxing of the ludicrous regional fuel standards that have done nothing to improve air quality (something about air not respecting state borders, maybe?) is something that should be made permanent anyway. Just goes to show that if the government gets the hell out of the way and let's the market meet the needs of the consumer, the people benefit.
