Democrats and the Price of Gasoline

George Will writes a great editorial on the continued foolishness of Pelosi and the Democrats… a few excerpts:

“Pelosi announced herself ‘particularly concerned’ that the highest price of gasoline recently was in her San Francisco district… Actually, Pelosi’s constituents are being gouged by people like Pelosi — by government. While oil companies make about 13 cents on a gallon of gasoline, the federal government makes 18.4 cents (the federal tax) and California’s various governments make 40.2 cents (the nation’s third-highest gasoline tax). Pelosi’s San Francisco collects a local sales tax of 8.5 percent — higher than the state’s average for local sales taxes.”
