Douglas & Joe Hagmann ~ We’re seasoned investigators, so we have an inherent desire to dig for the truth. Experience and common sense has shown us that we should never rely on the “accepted” explanation for something when that explanation involves money or politics, and is repeated without challenge by the media. We don’t like liars and thieves, and will expose them whenever possible.
We wanted to get to the bottom of why we’re paying nearly $4.00 per gallon for gasoline at the pump. We wanted to know who or what is responsible for the current high price of gasoline? In addition to being a major economic burden for American families, it is also a national security issue, especially when our petrodollars are subsidizing Islamic terrorist activities.
The task to determine the truth was indeed a daunting one, not only because of the complexity of the issue but due to the facts being tightly wrapped inside various political and globalist agendas, “cooking the books” by using different reporting standards, and various other tangential issues. During our investigation, we even found two energy “analysts” using the same graph to arrive at opposite conclusions.
Nonetheless, we’ve conducted an extensive investigation in an effort to provide our readers with a concise and unbiased report that explains why we are suffering at the gasoline pumps. In the process, we’ve identified several significant lies that we are told to accept as the truth.
Publicly “accepted” explanations
We first reviewed the “official” explanations offered for high gasoline prices that can readily be found in the statements by political leaders and from the media. They currently include Iran’s threats to block oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz, unrest in the Middle East, and even problems in Africa, although the reasons offered through recent history seem to change with events of the day. Although these reasons sound plausible, our investigation determined the actual reasons for high prices at the pump lie closer to home, and not for the reasons alleged by the government and repeated by the media. Whether it is due to simple ignorance or for the purpose of advancing a particular agenda, the talking heads on the far left, the conservative pundits of the right and the reporters in the middle have got it all wrong.
