But ... Obama has the D.O.J. looking at speculators!

... and "price gougers!"

How 'bout looking within, dope:

The Obama administration continued war against oil drilling as the Shell Oil company threw its hands up in the air and scrapped efforts to drill for oil this summer in the Arctic Ocean off the northern coast of Alaska. The reason? EPA regulations.

The needed air permits were approved, but after a challenge by an environmental group, the board changed it's mind. Here's the "fun" part. The reason the EPA refused to grant the permit was the appeal board’s suggestion that the Arctic drill would somehow be hazardous for the people who live in the area. This is a very remote section of Alaska, the town of Kaktovik is the nearest community to the drilling site, its 70 miles away, occupies one square mile and has a population of 245. There is very little chance for Kaktovik to be affected by the drilling. (Link.)

Remember -- The Messiah doesn't care if gas prices go up. Period. Any obfuscation to deflect from this fact will be utilized.
