Saudi Arabia, oil prices, and the US election

Futher to this it seems that Bob Woodward has lately whipped-up a bit of an oil-gate, with Prince Bandar promising George Bush that Saudi Arabia will lower oil prices in the months before the US election.

Again, kneejerk resort to party-politics is diverting the real issue here. Face it, America - the real problem/outrage is that Prince Bandar has the capacity (or not) to deliver on his promise. Think about it, next time you're filling your gas tank with Saudi oil*.
