There's no correlation between domestic oil production and prices at the pump. Pretty important to understand this given that republicans are blaming the current gas prices on Obama's reluctance to drill domestically.

I had another great meal here today, maybe the best yet. They've opened up another dining room to the right, so there's more space and less of a wait. We also got a good table with plenty of space. I didn't feel crammed like I sometimes do. It's also nice to get hot tea poured right away after coming in from the rainy cold. The food was superb as usual. Consistency is the major strength of this place. We ordered pork soup dumplings, shao mai, vegetable noodle soup, and beef and scallion pancake. The pork soup dumplings have a delicious, distinct salty and savory flavor. The shao mai are filled with a sticky rice mixture and are heartier than I expected. The vegetable noodlesoup is probably the best soup you can get here because it's just chock full of vegetables like bok choy, several kinds of mushroom, sliced bean curd, etc. The beef and scallion pancake is crispy and flavorful, made complete with a mouthwatering, sweet and savory hoisin sauce. The two factors keeping this place from "excellent" are the service and the cleanliness, though neither are so miserable to warrant a poor rating. The first thing you're likely to notice here is that your table is wet or sticky, or that there are crumbs or other little morsels hanging out on your table. I understand that it's a very popular restaurant, but I think most people wouldn't mind waiting another 10 seconds so that their tables can be properly cleaned before they're seated. This has been a problem every time I've gone. The other recurring problem is that it's hard to get the attention of the servers, especially when trying to get the check. By the time we were ready to leave today, the restaurant was half empty, and the servers were doing small tasks in the kitchen area. Even when one of them came out to do something, they never even looked my way for almost 10 minutes. We also never got a tea refill the entire time until we asked for it with the check. I also get the impression that the servers are usually in a bad mood by the manner in which they talk to us and drop the plates on the table while looking elsewhere. Improvements in these areas would make for a stellar restaurant, though I guess they have little incentive to improve since they're so popular and operating over capacity almost every day.
