(SNN Washington) Today, President Bush froze filling of the nation's emergency oil reserve and urged suspension of clean air rules to ease gas shortages. In addition, he took away $2 billion in tax credit from oil companies that have seen profits increase $16 billion over the last 5 years.

Experts say Bush's actions won't have any impact on prices at the pump. However, President Bush countered with, "Every little bit helps." This is very true, except when it is incorrect. In addition, oil refiners claimed that the waivers were too late to do any good.

When questioned on the wisdom of waiving the clean air act, the President pointed out that the waivers would only be for 60 days. As a balance to the loss in air quality, Mr. Bush suggested a moratorium on refried beans.

Bush also urged lawmakers to expand tax breaks for the purchase of fuel-efficient hybrid automobiles, a politically popular measure that's also supported by environmentalists. Hybrid vehicles have become popular amongst young professional and those unconcerned with penis size.

This suspension of the filling of the Strategic Oil Reserve was actually suggested by Sen. John Kerry in 2004. At the time, Bush said it was the last act of a desperate man.
