Senator Clinton isn't alone in thinking a gas-tax holiday is a good idea, but that doesn't actually make it one. Unfortunately, there's a very simple reason that explains most of why gas is going up - and it isn't even the war in Iraq (though, it's not helping). The largest factor in gas going up isn't even price gouging, or anything that oil companies are doing (though, again, they aren't helping).
The problem is this administration's contempt for the US dollar, which has fallen so drastically that of course it's going to be reflected in oil prices. The bottom line is that, if people want affordable gas under current circumstances, they need to elect more Democrats to push back on this President's disastrous policies that have quickly killed the dollar in Washington D.C. We need more Democrats in Congress, more in the Senate and especially a Democratic President to boot. That's the only way to reverse the Republican agenda and set this country back on the right course, which Democratic Presidents have a pretty darn good track record of doing.
