Goodlatte’s “Pain at the Pump” video

Congressman Bob Goodlatte recently emailed constituents with a link to this video, trying to make the case that the only solution to high gasoline prices is increased domestic drilling.

As you can see, it hasn’t gone over so well. I wrote in the comments:

Congressman, oil is a world commodity, and higher gas prices are caused primarily by higher demand in countries like India and China. Simply increasing domestic production will do nothing to change this.

At least he or his people were fair enough not to delete it.
