Bush can't even lead in Iraq so who expects him to be a leader on the energy problem in this country. He was too concerned on protecting his oil buddies and auto manufacturers. He will definitely lose the election but the average person will be the one to suffer. Bush has to go and soon!

"The ugly side of inflation has become apparent � ice cream prices are going higher. Thanks to an unhappy coincidence of political turmoil, natural disasters, and old fashioned fluctuations in the dairy biz, ice cream makers are stuck with higher bills for milk, vanilla and cocoa.

Klondike bars will cost 10 cents more per �multipack.� And don�t forget the new higher cost of idling at the drive-through."
