Aspen, Colo. (AP) Presumptive republican presidential nominee John McCain attended an economic forum in Aspen where he chastised congress for going on recess “while people are paying $3.75 a gallon for gas.”

The audience of 800 began hooting and laughing and yelled that in aspen they're paying nearly $5 a gallon. McCain recovered with a well-received crack about plans to “soak the rich.”

The Arizona Senator made te comments at the Aspen Institute after a noon fund-raiser.

Mccain has no scheduled public events tomorrow but is expected to meet with top aides.

Campaign sources say McCain is likely to spend a few days next week huddled with advisers, possibly working on his vice presidential decision.
