Biden: Oil prices cost of Bush failures

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Presidential hopeful Joe Biden says New Hampshire residents can thank the Bush Administration for the high cost of oil.

He says the president is continuing a flailing policy toward the Middle East.

Biden is escalating his criticism of the temporary increase of troops in Iraq. In recent days, Biden has called the move a "fantasy" and said there is no evidence it is working. Biden now says such efforts are making oil more expensive. He says uncertainty in Iraq and Iran are adding an extra $30 a barrel. Oil prices are now at $100 a barrel.
