Bush Out of Touch on Gas Prices

As if we needed another reason to demonstrate that George Bush is out of touch with real Americans, The Chicago Tribune reports today that gas prices have broken the $4 barrier:

Chicagoans are paying an average $4.07 a gallon for gasoline, good enough for topping the notorious list of the highest gas prices in the country. Long Island residents are also paying about $4 a gallon—making it the only other large metropolitan area to hit the $4-a-gallon mark for regular gas.
Remember this?
Peter Maer of CBS News Radio asked: "What's your advice to the average American who is hurting now, facing the prospect of $4-a-gallon gasoline, a lot of people facing ... "

"Wait, what did you just say?" the president interrupted. "You're predicting $4-a-gallon gasoline?"

Maer responded: "A number of analysts are predicting $4-a-gallon gasoline."

Bush's rejoinder: "Oh, yeah? That's interesting. I hadn't heard that."
