Suing OPEC

All right, who voted this bloody idiots into office? The House, probably in an attempt to take the spotlight off of them, voted Tuesday to allow the government to sue OPEC over oil production quotas.
The House felt it was important to take on OPEC, the major player in oil production. Member states of OPEC late last year cut production by 1.1 million barrels a day to counter what had been a buildup of world oil stocks. (John)Conyers D-Mich, accused the OPEC engaging in a "price fixing conspiracy" that has "unfairly driven up the price" of crude oil and, in turn gasoline.

If we're really interested in suing those responsible for the high gas prices we need to investigate Congress and the Environmentalists. They're the ones stopping America from drilling for oil and not allowing new refineries to be made.
