George W. Bush, asked today whether he regrets not doing more during his first term to prevent high gas prices now: "You might remember when I first came in. I think the price of oil was like -- I know it was below $20. And it's all of a sudden now that the price of oil is up, alternatives become much more economically viable, and therefore I think the American people are going to see a lot of technological development happen quickly, which will enable people to have different options and different choices."
We love it when a plan comes together
