From today’s Washington Post, “Holiday Travelers Pumped“:
Despite all of the doom and gloom over the economy, people in the Washington area are still planning to travel long distances for dry turkey and the warm embrace of family.
Travel experts say the dramatic fall in gas prices — down from an average of $4.11 a gallon in July to $1.91 today — is likely to salvage a holiday travel season that had been predicted to be one of the worst in memory.
Congress returns to Washington the week of December 8th. We demand a hearing calling the major oil company executives on the carpet, asking them to explain why they and co-conspirators in the futures market have manipulated prices to fall as low as they have. Who’s profiting? Why? Isn’t it it time for a Federal Trade Commission investigation into price-gouging?
