Too much regulation causes high gas prices

Success - Article sent! close

Gas prices have risen to near $5 a gallon. It appears that the Al Gores of the world may get their wish by making gas prices so expensive that renewable energy begins to look a like a bargain.

The science behind going green is questionable to say the least. Case in point: One scientist went to the Hawaiian Islands to take readings on the CO2 levels in the atmosphere. He was shocked to find the readings were higher than anyone previously thought. Unfortunately, there was no mention that there is an active volcano on the islands. Volcanoes spew tremendous amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. The ring of fire around the Pacific coasts is always releasing CO2 from fissures underwater and thawing lands in Alaska. This has been going on before man had any of the technology seen today.

Our current administration and the EPA are responsible for these price hikes by instituting unnecessary regulations that affect the industry without any oversight of unforeseen consequences that arise. The question that remains is who is making these enormous profits, and where is that money going?
