A short reminder of why we're waiting for this particular regime to turnover.
Fast forward to 7:15 when the reporter mentions projections that gas will hit $4/gallon soon. Here's a transcript of the press conference.

And on a humorous note, I found this telling quote in a Seattle Times story about Bush's remarks:

At a Shell service station in San Mateo, Calif., the price of a gallon of regular had already reached $4.29, well above the California average of $3.42, as measured by AAA.
"Bush is out of touch with a lot of things we are facing today," said Marisa Cajbon, 33, who was filling her Toyota Sequoia SUV. "I have to buy gas. I need to work. I have two kids. I think it's unfortunate. I think it's a crime."
