The eco-Dumbledores in the current administration have magical powers when it comes to increasing prices, but when it comes to lowering them they act as if they have fewer options than Dobby in a big & tall shop.

From CNS News:

“Not even Harry Potter” can bring down rising gas prices and nobody knows when they will stop rising, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said Tuesday.

“No one has the ability – not even Harry Potter – to simply wave a magic wand and say that we’re going to have gas prices at $2 or $2.50 or $3. It just doesn’t work that way,” said Salazar, whose department controls oil and gas drilling on federal lands.

The comments came after a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on energy issues.

Salazar said prices are set by “global economics.” On that point, here’s David Harsanyi at Human Events:

This is true. Then again, erecting roadblocks to domestic production is part of the global economic picture. And Ken Salazar has done exemplary work in that regard.

Indeed. Or in language more fitting to Mr. Salazar’s theme, his department serves as Bludgers in U.S. economy’s game of Quidditch.
