Not a single leader, journalist or businessman has mentioned the only way to lower gas prices, that being a price rollback. The oil and gas industries were regulated from WW ll till the 70's. Free markets with supply and demand factored in do not exist without competition. Major oil companies and the cartel have destroyed competition and can now charge what they will, whether it kills the U.S. economy or not. America has always controlled industries that can charge whatever they want. A surge in free enterprise propaganda during the last several years has poisoned the minds of Americans and further enriched Big Business, where free enterprise flourishes while the rest of the nation dwindles and dies.
