HOW COMFORTING: Salazar: ‘No one knows’ if US headed to $9/gal gas. “Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said that ‘no one knows’ if gasoline prices in the United States will reach $9 per gallon, and acknowledged that the possibility is outside his control.”

Related: Reid draws line against Keystone. “Senate Democrats will hold firm and reject House Republican demands to include approval of the Keystone oil pipeline in transportation funding legislation, their leader said Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he would not in any way help Republicans move Keystone approval across the finish line.”

UPDATE: David Harsanyi: Actually, if Ken Salazar had his way we’d already have $9 per gallon gas.
