There is no shortage. But if we get price controls, there will be shortages overnight. Sometimes I wish it would happen just to prove to the idiots who want controls what it would get us. Why in the world would any gas station bother to sell gas for less than it cost them to replace it? Since the price of oil is not decided in the U.S., price controls would just mean no one sells to us. Why would Canada, our largest supplier, sell to us for less than they could get elsewhere?
