They WANT gas to be $5 a gallon and more, even up the the $14 a gallon mark. At $14 a gallon, milk, bread and a dozen eggs would ALL be over $8 each. Most couldn't afford it. It's profit first, keeping the prices higher [exporting more of oil, gasoline, natural gas, etc., will keep prices higher and help to move them higher], how much the lobbyists can put into their pockets for their campaigns, how much more the Federal and state governments can take in, etc. However, this would benefit quite a few people here at home, Canada, Europe, the Ukraine, etc. Now, if they would only capture and make use of more of the natural gas they burn off at the oil wells, etc.
