Slippery slope indeed. First oil then what? That's why socialist government don't work. Capitalism does work. Sometime business's need to be hit over the head once in awhile but you know ,as well as I, price controls don't work, usually makes things worse.

Here in Wisconsin the governor wants to add .05 tax to a gallon of gas, we are already at 32.9 cents state tax. He also wants to add a excess profit tax to every barrel of oil/gas that comes into the state. I believe the saying that, 'businesses don't pay taxes, people pay the taxes'. All business taxes get passed on to the public.
