Cartoon of the Day: 1 Foot on Brakes, 1 on the Gas

Isn't a lot of what Congress does like driving a car with one foot on the gas and one foot on the brakes?

Exhibit A: Congress drives up gasoline prices with ethanol fuel mandates, seasonal formulation mandates, and by restricting refinery expansion and oil exploriation in the U.S., and then passes the "Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act" to protect consumers against high gasoline prices?

It is difficult to fathom the ignorance of the general populace when they talk about price gouging. All they see are the numbers on the pump. They don't see the scads of regulations and taxes that go on behind the scenes.
