Letter: These low gas prices are not going to last

These low gas prices are not going to last

Recent newspaper and TV stories tell of many people buying larger, heavier and less efficient vehicles due to the much lower fuel costs. This is rather self-defeating since part of the oil glut is because of the high miles per gallon achieved by more efficient vehicles.

Now, since both houses of Congress are controlled by Republicans, and they receive millions of dollars from the oil industry, they will do everything in their power to raise fuel prices to keep the oil companies happy and their donations flowing. Why do you think they want the Keystone XL pipeline? The public be damned!
