WAPO/ABC NEWS POLL: Gas prices sink Obama’s ratings on economy, bring parity to race for White House.

This is why they want people talking about birth control.

Your link on the price of gas and Obama’s economic rating reminded me that in 2008, the last time gas prices were this high, Trilby Lundberg was a near constant guest or source on NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered. Lundberg is a consultant specializing in gasoline price predictions, she’s a peak oil prophet, and she’s still active. But I couldn’t recall hearing her name mentioned at all this year on NPR. A search of NPR’s archives showed I was right.

Ms. Lundberg became an unperson at NPR after 2008. Wonder why that is?

Maybe we should call it National Party Radio.
