The United States has spent trillions of dollars and killed countless people, bringing lots of death and destruction to the Middle East in the pursuit of cheap crude oil.
There was an enormous amount of payout to the elites and oil companies, but the average American consumer is rewarded with increased taxes, cuts in benefits and services, and higher gas prices.
The media is hyping the high gas prices, mentioning that prices in some areas of the country are almost $6/gallon. And to add insult to injury, many groups use those same high gas prices to garner support for doing the Middle East oil “smash and grab” all over again. Assume the position!
