Gasoline on Jan 20, 2009 when he was sworn into office was $1.78. Today it is pushing $4 in some areas and $5 in California.
At a press conference in 2006, the question was asked of George W. Bush, What do you say to people who are losing patience with gas prices at $3 a gallon? And how much of a political price do you think you’re paying for that, right now? Also in 2006, Barbara Boxer said, Since George Bush and Dick Cheney took over as president and vice president, gas prices have doubled… They are too cozy with the oil industry
In 2008, Nancy Pelosi blasted the president as reported on ABC San Francisco, The speaker blames what she labels the Bush-Cheney big oil agenda, using graphics to point out gasoline prices have more than doubled in the Bush administration. ‘This is a scam of the greatest magnitude,’ says Speaker Pelosi. Now that the gas prices are at the highest levels in history, when has the media blamed Obama’s big oil agenda? When do critics in the mainstream media or Nancy Pelosi call Obama’s handling of high cost of fuel, a scam?
0bama is heavily invested in foreign energy and ":green ": energy. He promised our energy costs would rise and that is one promise he has kept. He declared a Jihad on oil coal and natural gas here in America
Instead of pointing out some facts that support ":why obama wants extremely high gas prices": you just chose to rehash the old arguments about it from the Bush admin. The things that they were saying to Bush and co. back then are nearly identical to the things Cons and Fox news are saying about Obama now. Trying to put the shoe on the other foot does not make your argument valid in any way. You know darn well that neither Obama or Bush had any real influence on the price of gas….so stop being a dumb@ss and come up with a legitimate question instead of a ":this is what they said": comment.
1. We have oil boom in North Dakota.
2. We have the highest production of oil in over like 10 years.
3. Profits from Oil Corporations are setting records and growing.
4. Our gas prices is way cheaper than gas prices in Europe.
5. Oil Speculators own around 80% of the future oil markets value.
In Chu’s own words: We want to work to make gas prices as high as they are in Europe":.
Neither Bush nor Obama are responsible for gas prices.
You’re arguing that the president has full authority over gas prices.
If you knew anything about government and economics, you would know this isn’t true.
To drop them in October.
The President is working to keep us working and all you can do is complain like a little beotch.
So that you will be forced to gay-marry your cat.
