Low gas prices are a campaign contribution.
Profit during the term, then relax the noose in return for the favor.

Repeat as neccessary.

1. OPEC
Has declared they want to cut production to keep prices above $60.00 per barrel. Somehow, I don't think that particular move is going to help the R's in the election.

2. shouldn't they have to declare this at least

4. It results in (transient) comfort, and people might not vote "change"
when (momentarily) comfortable. Is this like the "October Suprise", in a way?

Cheney giving contracts to a company he used to help manage, and to gain stock value as a result, is more directly unethical, although it's basically the same.

Bush and his family and friends are friends with OPEC. They all profit together.
