People who make decisions based on logic will hopefully vote in their own self interest in November. Folks that are more inclined to base decisions on emotions and feelings often vote contrary to would benefit them best.

Hopefully the current US situation with inflation and gasoline prices will cause more people to use logic the next voting cycle.

Yes Hopefully people will learn their lessons and vote accordingly but I doubt it. The average voter has a short memory that is influenced by emotion. As we get closer to November Biden and the Dems will no doubt be touted as the ones that saved us from Covid and the inflation will be Putin's fault. Also the headlines from the Lefty media will be against any candidate with an "R" next to their name and they will be linked to Trump. Of course we all ready know that any Republican candidate regardless of their skin tone and background will be labelled a racist.



Logic is one thing with many adding a dose of common sense to it. We can see the cause and effect every time we fill up or go to the grocery store.

Liberal Logic is something else and common sense has nothing to do with it.

I'm reminded of a war in Europe and speculation on the part of oil companies.

Oh, and gas prices dropped 10 cents a gallon on Thursday. Shall I blame Biden for that?

It reminds me of the "casino" commodity trading system and how it funnels money to the wealthy from the pockets of working people.

I was filling my car, and freaking out at the $ amount on the pump hitting close to $100, cursing the name Joe Biden the whole time.

So, what would Republicans do to drop the price of oil? Biden has already dropped the price of oil by over $10.

No, for me (36 gallon tank) it's about every 3 weeks, my wife uses even less. When I do buy, though, it's always been about $100, now I'm filling at 1/4 full so I don't hit the $125 pump limit and end up without being full. Last time was $123.

True though, gas prices are a highly emotional topic, and they can have a huge effect on elections.
