WHO'S AFRAID of Big Oil? Apparently, California's elected officials. Gasoline prices are stuck well above last year's record highs and about 50 cents above the national average. Yet state politicians are not saying or doing a thing, except for raking in political cash from the oil companies and flying around the world on their dime. Take Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who once claimed that he was so rich he did not need anyone else's money -- and who isn't running for another office.
