That being said McCain should at the very least know that oil is over $140 a barrel and getting worse and he really should know (or have a general idea) what Joe Blow is paying for gas and how its making a mess of everything.

John McCain is a normal forgetful person just like everyone else and I'm sure he makes his fair share of mistakes. The only difference is, when he makes his mistakes, the camera is there to catch them.

I also think that if this question was asked of obama and he didn't know and someone called him on it, they'd be labeled a racist.
WISCKOL: When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost?
McCAIN: Oh, I don't remember. Now there's Secret Service protection. But I've done it for many, many years. I don't recall and frankly, I don't see how it matters.
The Senate plans to vote on an offshore drilling bill next week that would open more than 8 million acres to energy development in the Gulf of Mexico. Although the bill’s passage appears to be safe, Democrats are already lining up to oppose it.
Even though the Senate bill is only a modest step in comparison with a much stronger House equivalent, Democrats opposed to it will once again prove they have a greater interest in keeping gas prices high than letting Americans drill our own oil to reduce the need from the Middle East.
Democrats voting to increase gas prices
That's the truth. There is really no denying it. Oh sure sometimes they are voting to increase gas prices by "not voting" but it is still a position they hold and it is time that Republicans (unfortunately McCain can't do it) pin this issue squarely on the Dems where it belongs.
Investor’s Business Daily, the free-market newspaper, has pointed out that Democrats are a prime cause of killer oil and gas prices. About a week ago the Senate failed to end the moratorium on oil-shale development in Colorado. Republicans voted for removing that moratorium; Democrats voted against. But voters put more Democrats in office than Republicans, so here we are.

Personally I'd just rather have cheaper gas now and worry about renewable energy later.
