Chu, along with the Obama administration, regards the spike in gas prices as a feature rather than a bug. High gas prices provide an incentive for alternate energy technology, a priority for the White House, and a decrease in reliance on oil for energy.

social engineering thru higher prices at the pump.

Hows that hope and change workin' out for ya???

Many DemonRats have expressed the desire to raise gas taxes in the past to do the same thing.

Chu being 'OK with it' is a bit of an understatement, he's actually all for it, since it's the only way the Green BS approaches being competitive.  Unfortunately what he and other Greens fail to understand is that the rising petro costs will affect the inputs to all their 'Alternative' energy systems, driving up the market price of them to where they will STILL be uncompetitive with fossil energy, no matter how high its price point goes.  The only thing that will EVER make it competitive is the when fossil energy actually enters the exhaustion phase of its production curve.

Yes...or a "Red Queen's race," a great metaphor for cost relationships between two things that look like independent variables but really aren't.

You know what?

A great campaign commercial would be O's answer to Ed Henry's question at the prezes little presser yesterday compared to Chu's accidental lifting of the liberals skirt.

So they are trying to force us to use alternative means by shooting the prices at the pumps up? I figured that was what they were doing.

I suppose the reason this bonehead is ok with higher gas prices is because he doesn't own a car.  My guess is that he has a government car (luxury sedan, no doubt) with a government driver who fills it up on a government credit card.  Why in the world should he give 2 shits or a rolling donut how high gas prices go.  So much for this administration fighting for the working class.
