The inimitable Lileks on how to bring gas prices down:
* Confiscate the Iraqi oilfields. As long as we’re going to be accused of
fighting a war for oil, might as well get some gas out of it. The Iraqi
government is subsidizing gas for its own people; odd how we don’t get the same
benefit. It’s almost as if we think forging a constitution and birthing a civil
society is more important than diverting Iraqi crude to American cars. As the
Simpsons’ Comic Book Guy would say: Worst. Imperialists. Ever.
