    At most, he'd be able to drop it 18.4 cents per gallon, the federal tax on gasoline and I'm not even sure if he could do that without congressional approval.

    He could do much , much more WITHOUT congress ................. if he wanted to . Look at what Bush did when the speculators drove up the price of oil . Just His Word that he was going to open up the Stratigic Oil Reserves and put drilling permits on the fast track ( while opening up MORE federal lands & water for drilling ) . NOTE * the Price Of Oil Took a Dive ! ( a BIG dive ) . Bush gave us $1.85 GAS !

    Yes, the only thing Obama had anything to do with was the killing of Bin Laden. Everything else was George Bush's fault. It is Liberal logic.

    Everyone is dumb but the Liberal.

    You are dumb.
    No, you're dumb.
    Well, you are stupid.
    No, no, you are stupid.

    Doesn't that sound like two big government Liberals in an argument. It is way below my intelligence level but 3rd grade name calling seams to work for you.

    NO!! Despite the convenience of using a president as a scapegoat during times of higher gas prices, no president controls the price of gasoline. Now if we can put the reins on those damn greedy ass speculators, whose sole motivation is profit, then gas prices wouldn't be as high!

    AMEN ! This " CRISIS " Is By Design .
    Part #1 - Obama closes Gulf Drilling for America.
    Part #2 - Oil Rig owners are losing BILLIONS$$$ by having those oil rigs SIT
    Part #3 - George Soros buys a HUGE SHARE of Brasil Oil .
    Part #4 - Our Oil Rigs " RELOCATE " there because Obama closed the Gulf
    Part #5 - WE ARE SOLD OUT BY OBAMA ! ( just ONE small part of the Master Plan )

    Yeah, it was probably Bobby Jindal and company that did it! Sheeeesh.

    unclepat
    Yeah, you wanna play the silly conspiracy role? Let's go there then. Jindal and some GOP operatives were responsible for the "sabotage", because after realizing how stupid he was for publicly refusing stimulus money, he needed to divert attention from the fact that his budget was in deep do-do if he couldn't get his hands on some of the gov't dough. Hence, he arranges to blow up the oil rig. Now, how's that for your sabotage theory??

    Whatever. If you want to ignore the story, then go ahead. It's one of several that squarely point to BP's greed as the main culprit in the Deepwater Horizon explosion. Ignore whatever you choose to ignore.

    My question still stands. By whom?
  • unclepat 4570GOVT 2012/03/13 22:44:40

    The difference the president is trying to make right now is to quell the ever dangerous rhetoric coming from the GOP side of the coin. You start throwing around war rhetoric and, BOOM, gas prices go up. Also, with a new record for profits of over 137 BILLION dollars in 2011 alone, a threat to seriously end the tax breaks that those greedy bastards representing big oil get away with would certainly lower prices also!

    No question , SPECULATORS - AND - BIG OIL ( see OPEC ) are the source for the price gouge . There are other solutions for getting the price down than waiting for them to do the right thing ........................ they won't .

    Obama wants the gasoline prices to remain high!

    +3
    His energy secretary said that the administration is not concerned with how high the price of gas goes. But now Obama may decide to care because of the affect high gas prices are having in his polling numbers. It appears that Obama's idea of leadership is to do whatever works out best for him.
