57. This IS NOT GWB's fault!
Blame goes to every President from Reagan onward. GWB has just been the icing on the cake. Clinton gets a good share of blame. He did little to nothing to advance energy independence. In fact, he was a cheerleader for the rise of SUVs. CAFE standards went nowhere, except perhaps down, during his eight years.

Blame also goes to the American people. We want everything and we want it cheap. No sacrifice, no conservation. Yes, ExxonMobil is profiting to an obscene degree. Perhaps GWB gets some blame for not supporting a windfall profits tax. But he did not create this problem. We all did, through ignorance, apathy, and delusion.
