Didn't bother watching the big press conference tonight, but reading over the transcript, what is this all about?: "There will be no price gouging at gas pumps in America." Is this something that's thought to be a problem? And when did our president turn into such a consumer-rights champion? Heck, even I'm in favor of "price-gouging," for reasons more or less outlined here. But back to the issue at hand: Is Bush now thinking about price controls on gasoline? Egad, maybe everyone should stop giving the prez a hard time about his man date with Abdullah before he does something truly rash.
