$4, do I hear $5

Posted By on Fri, Jun 6, 2008 at 1:45 PM

Oil prices jumped by the biggest amount ever today. The market thinks Bush's desire to go to war with Iran might not be a boon to oil supply. Oh and that dollar? It's approaching Confederate money status around the world. Just in time for a surge in unemployment, too. Heckuva job, W. And McCain promises he'll stay Bush's course.

By the by, our gas prices are a bargain against western Europe. It's near $9 per gallon in France and England, almost $10 in Holland.

UPDATE: Your retirement investments? Going down the toilet too. Dow dropped 400 today on the bad employment numbers.
