Bush to air breathers: Drop dead! 


The Bush administration is considering easing environmental requirements for a multitude of gasoline blends and streamlining permits for new refineries to increase fuel supplies and fight soaring prices, Commerce Secretary Donald Evans said Wednesday.

Evans, a former Texas oil company executive, said in an Associated Press interview that the cost of gasoline, which hit a record national average of $2.06 per gallon this week, was affecting driving habits, with people making fewer trips to the store.

"Fewer trips to the store" versus clean air... Leave it to the Bush administration to make the tough decisions!

Fun how all things work together for good, isn't it? Bush go to war for oil, botch that, but the oil companies still make out!
