Re: Will gas prices drop when Obama is elected...
Sadly I was not paying close attention to gas prices in 2008. However, I do remember the effect that Jim Jeffords had when he functionally switched party affiliation in 2001. His secession threw the Senate over to the Democrats. In less than 24 hours the Western grid brownouts were over. I'm stunned that no one has ever investigated party complicity with that particular bit of theft, other than some finger-pointing at future governor Schwarzenegger, who had quite presciently met with energy executives beforehand.
