Republicans urge Bush to probe high gasoline costs

From Reuters via Yahoo! News:

Republican congressional leaders on Monday urged the Bush administration to investigate whether oil companies are overcharging consumers at the gasoline pump and if speculators are pushing up fuel prices.


Republicans fear they could lose the Senate and House of Representatives in this November's congressional elections if voters retaliate against them for the high fuel prices.


Yep, come election time the Republicans care about the average American all of a sudden. Its too late for them to win back the public, they're majority in Congress is definately going to to dwindle this November. Too bad its New Boss: Same As the Old Boss.
