Re "Sticker shock coming at the gas pump" (Viewpoints, June 19): Jay McKeeman's claim that cap-and-trade is the reason for the current increase in gas prices is so typical of corporate fearmongering.

The instability in the Middle East is behind the current uptick in gas prices. Show some fear for the violence against the people of those countries, not California's effort to clean up the environment.

But wait, dirty energy is your stock and trade now, isn't it?
