For those of you sti…
For those of you still insisting that Bush is to blame for high gas prices, let the OPEC fellas set you straight.

OPEC would do “its best” to ensure crude supplies are adequate to meet global demand, Saudi Arabia’s oil minister said Tuesday as prices surged after weekend terrorist attacks in his country.

The Beirut meeting is drawing intense attention in light of crude prices that have recently risen above $40 a barrel. Oil ministers and analysts alike have attributed this increase to unexpected strength in global demand and tensions in oil-rich parts of the Middle East.

The general increase is due to demand, and the prices bumped up on news of the terror attack in Saudi Arabia. And this is Bush’s fault…how, exactly?

Good thing we invaded Iraq so that, as the “It’s all about oil!” crowd insisted, we’re awash in cheap oil. Or not.
