Durdle door in Dorset southern England

Durdle Door is a natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast near Lulworth in Dorset, England.[1] It is privately owned by the Welds, a family who own 12,000 acres (50 km2) in Dorset in the name of the Lulworth Estate.[citation needed] It is open to the public. The name Durdle is derived from an Old English word 'thirl' meaning bore or drill.

Yep, thanks to the Socialist take over in 2006 and the POS currently in office campaigning that he would block domestic drilling & wanted higher energy prices.. Course I noticed that you conveniently left out the fact that when President Bush opened up the Gulf, gas prices came down to the price on the sticky..

Edit, it was that low in '09 but it had been much higher in '07.... And under Obama it has been nearly that low again, while the DOW is higher than it was in 09....

Keep the parf crap in parf....
First.....this is for random pictures. The random picture is a picture...whether political or not. Only comments make it political.

Second...don't post "fact check" when you are not stating facts. The price of crude tanked to around $40 per barrel in December 2008. The national average for a gallon of gas in December was around $1.60 http://gasbuddy.com/gb_retail_price_chart.aspx. That is how you post a fact...not, "I don't think I've ever paid 1.78 for gas"


Third...what does the DOW have to do with the picture above?

and Fourth, post a damn picture of your own!
