Just A Thought About The Gas Prices

I've been thinking about the recent gas prices, they're falling. Rumors are that they should keep falling until hitting around two bucks a gallon say near thanksgiving time. Hmm, isn't there a mid-term election just before thanksgiving this year? Could it be possible that the GOP called in some markers from big oil to help out, quietly. You know big oil owes the GOP a lot. With lower fuel prices, the economy should began to recover. And by lowering gas prices now, people will began to have more money to spend, for say Christmas gifts the day after thanksgiving. Hmm, just a thought.

Two US Marines killed in Iraqi insurgent stronghold

BAGHDAD, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Two U.S. Marines were killed in action on Sunday in Iraq's Anbar province, the U.S. military said in a statement on Monday.

Anbar is where the three-year-old Sunni insurgency against the U.S. occupation and the Shi'ite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is worst and where the U.S. military suffers most of its casualties.

"Two Marines assigned to Regimental Combat Team 5 died yesterday due to enemy action while operating in al Anbar Province," the statement said.
