Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said yesterday that Congress will "absolutely not" roll back the federal gasoline tax in an effort to make gas more affordable. He said that Congress is looking at other ways to increase supply and lower sky-high gas prices.

"There's a lot of things that would increase supply which is incredibly important in order to hold down the price and have the price go down," DeLay said.

Hmmmm. Like NOT giving billions of dollars in tax breaks to his friends and big donors in the oil industry, maybe? Just a thought.
