Hey Saudi Arabia, Help Us Out!

Bush has appealed to OPEC nation Saudi Arabia to consider the damage that high fuel prices are having on the U.S. economy. Bush hopes that the market size of the United States will help him sway members of OPEC to increase production, lower prices, and allow U.S. consumers to spend on something besides gas.

Bush fails to recognize that while the United States maybe the largest consumer of fuel it is the rise of India and China that have put a strain on the fuel markets. With a combined population of well over 2 billion, these nations dwarf the market potential of the United States. The U.S. isn't the only country that can buy oil. Story from the International Herald Tribune.
