Cartoon Round-up Ouch Gas prices

Ouch!Gas Prices!

The price of oil came close to the $100 dollar a barrel level recently as gas prices continue to climb.High gas prices are an evergreen theme for political cartoonists.Huge, menacing gas pumps have become a regular cartoon character.

After a while it gets tough.We've drawn every possible combination of SUV bashing, oil company logo parody; we drew paying an 'arm and a leg' for gas, with actual arms and legs -- or paying with your first born; or trading the college education for a tank of gas.Gas pumps are often guns pointed at the comsumers' head -- or nooses.

Just when it seems like every possible gas price gag has been done -- we have another round of high gas prices and we're all back to the drawing board.
