From the Houston Chronicle:
"The records came on the eve of a congressional committee appearance by executives from the nation's five largest oil companies.
The title of the hearing — "Drilling for Answers: Oil Company Profits, Runaway Prices and Pursuit of Alternatives" — hints at the reception industry leaders may expect from the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.
"This new gas prices record is a perfect example of why we need these oil companies to go on the record with the American people to discuss our dangerous dependence on oil," said Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass., chairman of the panel."
The Democrats in Congress: All Talk, No Action.
