What that graph shows is that we are at the historically adjust peek for gas prices. While high, it's really not that bad.
Consumer cost of gasoline per mile driven has steadily dropped from the peek of 1981. Right now prices are at that adjusted peek. It wasn't the end of the world 25 years ago and it won't be now either.

El Tiante - could we have a source for your graph, please? And btw, it's actually spelled 'peak'. 'Peek' (noun and verb) refers to the act of having a brief look at something.
And nice try with the adjustment for 'gas price per mile'. The oil companies are posting record profits, though. They seem happy.

Bush did this move because it's what the most important for those who vote for him, the rednecks. For the rednecks, the gas price is extremely important so if the president lower it, it will be a good president regardless of what he does.
