Did oil companies try to manipulate the election?
MP commentator Jamie Court gives a definitive answer:
[I]n the run-up to the election, oil companies cut gasoline prices 500 percent more than their raw material cost fell.
Note that there is no 'Some might think . . .' or 'There are those who say . . .' about this. (See theyrereal's incisive diary on this phenomenon.) The evidence, to Court, is just too clear. His source? Department of Energy data.
