Letters: What you get


A recent letter writer suggested that Democrats are to blame for a 30 cent per gallon rise in the price of gasoline.

No, the price of gas has risen due to Texas refinery shut-downs and resulting shortages. Texas put in cheap energy infrastructure that could not withstand recent ice storms. (Minnesota's wind turbines work fine at -30F.) The Texas power grid, the "electric Alamo," is autonomous; since no power crosses state lines, it is free of dreaded Federal regulation. You want smaller government and less regulation? This is what you get.
