Goodale digging heels in on gas taxes

On the way to the office this morning I heard Ralph Goodale refusing to cut gas taxes, saying it would be a waste of time, and the the only people who would profit would be oil companies. Think of what he is really saying. He's saying oil companies are gougers. He's saying there is no competitive market for gasoline. Of course Goodale can't explain why the difference between gas prices in Canada and the US is precisely the difference in taxation.

Is Goodale doing his best impersonation of a communist just to get himself out of sticky situation?

Goodale has been neutered ever since Jack Layton's budget was passed. To be perfectly frank, Raplhie's grasp of economics and fiscal policy has been tenuous at best.
