Why did Fossella vote to allow oil companies to gouge prices at the pump?

via ABC News;

With average U.S. pump prices at an all-time, inflation-adjusted high of $3.22 a gallon, the House voted 284-141 for the "Federal Price Gouging Protection Act," which bans sellers from charging prices that are "unconscionably excessive," or take "unfair advantage" of consumers.

HR 1252, Federal Price Gouging Prevention Act, received 56 Republican votes (in addition to 228 Democrats) as well as being co-sponsored be fellow NY Republicans Rep. Kuhl and Rep. Walsh. So why did Rep. Vito Fossella decide to oppose this and support Oil Companies should they decide to excessively raising gas prices?
