Bush worried low pump prices may slow new fuels
18 minutes ago


ST LOUIS (Reuters) - President Bush on Thursday said that falling gasoline prices are "good news" for consumers, but said he was worried that lower pump costs would stunt development of alternative energy fuels.

"My worry is, however, that a low price of gasoline will ... make us complacent about our future when it comes to energy," Bush said at a government-sponsored renewable energy conference in St. Louis.

The national price for regular unleaded gasoline dropped 5 cents over the past week and 78 cents in the last nine weeks to $2.26 a gallon, according to the Energy Information Administration's weekly survey of service stations.

2. Prelude to a price gas increase
The creep will soon begin and bush will cite his speech as just another reason to keep republicans in power. They are pure evil.

8. Oh, man, The Chimp pulled the classic "boast in the form of a complaint"..
Along the lines of, "I'm having so much sex, my **** is sore," etc.

Yessir, gas prices are sooooooooooooooo dang low that The Chimp is worried that everyone will get complacent about all those alternative energy initiatives he's got stacked up in front of him.

What an absolute ***CROCK***!!!! :nuke:
