Obama is big reason behind high gas prices

The price of gas one day before President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009 was $1.84 a gallon. You blamed Bush when gas prices were high during his term, so whose fault is it now? It’s not Iraq or Afghanistan either as both existed with much higher uncertainty during Bush’s terms.

All this time I had thought Bush and Cheney were market manipulators of oil prices or so we were told over and over by Democrats. What’s going on now? There is no higher tax on people than high gas prices.

Obama was in Florida last week saying algae is an answer to our oil problem. That is how out of touch this president is.

Why not natural gas of which we have a huge abundance? Obama just denied going ahead with an oil pipeline across the western U.S. from Canada to the Gulf. Denying good jobs and ensuring high gas prices, Obama 2012.
