Bush orders probe into gas prices

by Nick Aziz

U.S. President George W. Bush has ordered an investigation into the price of gasoline, citing concerns by some that pricing may have been illegally manipulated. Mr. Bush has been under growing pressure to do something about the price of gas, which is inching past $3 and back toward all-time highs. Meanwhile, Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada has suggested strict anti-price gouging legislation. Meanwhile, Oil companies are expected to announce multibillion-dollar first-quarter profits today.
