Environmentalists causing higher gas prices

Well, that's what those who contribute to the Seattle P-I 'soundoff' are blaming higher gas prices on. 'Eco-nazis' won't allow drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and more drilling is the answer. Others are blaming the higher prices on the Bush Administration. Others call for less SUVs and more telecommuting. Some fear the coming of peak oil. Many are entertaining, some insightful - all very interesting if you consider what sources (ie bias) people might be getting their 'information' from - AM radio, local newspapers, national evening news, NPR.

Readers are responding to this PI story, "Gas Prices Rise, Frustrations Mount," that recount people's 'hardships' with the 39-cent increase in the Seattle region in the past month.


  • I've just started a discussion on the world without oil. Would be keen to have you contribute.
