Good News for Anal Sex Enthusiasts!

Well, it’s Thursday, and that means it’s either time for me to change my sheets again, or that Bush is sewing political thread from the hay of American tragedy, and making his petrol-pals a little bit richer in the process.

Like some royal benefactor to a starving and plague-ridden populace, Good King George has promised to release the strategic oil reserves in order to relieve the sting of hyper-inflative gasoline prices. Seems Katrina damaged the many oil refining facilities in Louisiana and there will be no production for some time. Releasing the SOR will increase the supply of the light, sweet stuff, and anyone who’s taken Economics 101 knows that if you increase supply, prices must come down. I mean, it worked for Clinton, right?

Problem is, an increase in the supply of crude oil does not correlate to an increase in the supply of gasoline and diesel... at least not in the States.

Production capacity was already maxed out before Katrina; we had Jersey, Louisiana, and some stuff out on the West Coast. We were already importing refined petrol from Canada, eh?

Increased supply of the primary raw materiel in gasoline production decreases the costs of production; however, even when demand remains constant, if capacity decreases, prices at the pump will rise. And since production costs have gone down, it results in greater profit margins for the energy companies.

So don’t look for gas prices to start coming down after our strategic oil reserves are tapped. Instead, prepare to get fucked in the ass some more... and that lube you were using? Well, it’s petroleum based, and its price just went up as well.

I live in PA and the noon news said prices might raise to $5.00 a gallon. I won't be going anywhere, anytime soon. I miss Clinton.

Slightly unrelated, but not really. First, this is the Drudge story:

Eyewitness: Sec of State Condi Rice laughs it up at 'Spamalot' while Gulf Coast lays in tatters. Theater goers on New York' City's Great White Way were shocked to see the President's former National Security Advisor at the Monty Python farce last night -- as the rest of the cabinet responds to Hurricane Katrina...

This is the referring story, from Gawker:

According to Drudge, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has recently enjoyed a little Broadway entertainment. And Page Six reports that she’s also working on her backhand with Monica Seles. So the Gulf Coast has gone all Mad Max, women are being in the Superdome, and Rice is enjoying a brief vacation in New York. We wish we were surprised.

What does surprise us: Just moments ago at the Ferragamo on 5th Avenue, Condoleeza Rice was seen spending several thousands of dollars on some nice, new shoes (we’ve confirmed this, so her new heels will surely get coverage from the WaPo’s Robin Givhan). A fellow shopper, unable to fathom the absurdity of Rice’s timing, went up to the Secretary and reportedly shouted, “How dare you shop for shoes while thousands are dying and homeless!” Never one to have her fashion choices questioned, Rice had security PHYSICALLY REMOVE the woman.

I want to buy that angry woman lunch. This is as bad as if Colin Powell had decided to take a vacation on 9/12/01 in Arizona. This is actually worse than 9/11. An entire city in this country has all but been wiped off the map. What, because it's a natural disaster instead of a terrorist plot, it doesn't matter? WTF is wrong with this administration? Don't any of them have any sense of propriety? God, Condi needs to be fired.

You forgot about the refineries in Texas and Wyoming. Still, we are definitely at a loss. Is this the point at which we all say, "Thanks, Shrub"?

The truly sad thing is that we aren't half as low as people would have us believe, even without the reserve. No, all Katrina has done is give the gas companies good reason to TELL us we're low and jack the prices up.

If I didn't commute, I'd just ride a bike.
