Bush is responsible for oil production increases during the Obama's term. Obama started decreasing US oil production in 2010.

    I already know I'd vote for Mickey Mouse before I'd vote for the current WH resident - gas prices won't make a difference.

    If Gas prices hit $5.00 he is gone and the price is there now.Ask most people on the street,if they are lefties they say no problem.If they are righties they say Goodbye.If a bird had a left wink and a right wing that did not match each other it could not fly.That is why the Government can/t fly.It does not take a genius to see it.The gas problem is the tip of l;the iceberg.

    Not for me. in 2004 my wife and I decided to reduce our dependence on oil. We bought Priuses which cut our gasoline usage by more than 50%, then we got a solar water heater and finally solar panels for electricity. So we are in relatively good shape to withstand oil increases which were bound to happen once the economy starts recovering.

    the president does not control gas prices

    Based on history, so far the President has been ineffective at controlling gas prices. Speculators are in charge of the gas prices.
    Having said that, I would like to believe in Gingrich's plan for $2.50.
    Do you believe he can, or is it just a stunt to get more supporters on his side?
  • voice_m... Pm 2012/03/16 14:58:39

    ok first off the president has no control over gas prices. the speculators determine the price of oil which then effects the price of gas. anyone who thinks a president can control gas prices is clueless

    We can't afford it, that's why. Going out costs too much money...even just down to the grocery store. It's a problem and Obama has only made the problem so much worse.

    In the UK,no matter who we vote for,their first target for more taxation is the motorist,we no longer have a government,but a mouthpiece for the EU green nazis.

    on a lighter note,

    I filled up the car with petrol then headed into pay witha giant condom on my head.

    "What on earth are you doing sir?" Asked the cashier bemused.

    "Oh this?" I replied pointing to the condom, "My mum always told me to make sure I wear one while I'm being screwed."

    I don't care if gas prices go below a dollar or soar above $5.00. President Obama's policies will not gain my support. Consequently, the only thing that will change my vote is if the candidate opposite of Obama in the election was even more extreme in his policies.

    The simple fact for whatever reason, the present administration is bleeding the working class dry. Some common sense has to be put in the White House and it doesn't mean re-electing him as it goes on.

    then tell me the reason you libs could not show the prices were due to bush and now you can not show they are due to obama. all you need is one reason
  • goatman... voice_m... 2012/03/13 03:08:24

    Simple, Bush didn't have an energy Secretary say under oath, the price needs to be higher. Second Bush made the moves to have the price drop as Obama did in a speech recently left out short term but pushed only medium and long term.

    libby gas prices went up with bush in office. so two different people, 2 different policies but same reaction.

    but gas prices under bush did go higher than obama so far. thanks for showing that the gas prices have nothing to do with who is in office

    True. Look at the prices when Obama took office. I believe here in Washington we were paying $1.84 per gallon.

    Granted at one time during the Bush Admin prices approached $5, but that was due to the unrest in the Middle East. Once that settled down, the price as well went down.

    So long as we allow Iran to threaten closing the Straits of Hormuz, and remain hostage to OPEC and the World Spuculators controlling both Supply and pricing, we will stay screwed.

    Just dumping 700,000 barrels of crude from domestic production by the XL pipeline scares the poo out of both OPEC and the speculators. Obama with the stroke of a pen could cause them to crap their pants.

    so bush takes action and gas prices go up, obama does nothing and prices go up. so again it doesn't matter what the president does according to you gas prices will always go up

    I'd didn't then nor will I EVER vote for Obama. I'm not convinced there will even be an election in November.

    Obama acts like a man totally unconcerned about an election coming up.

    If it (the election) transpires, Obama faces an epic historical defeat at the polls no matter how much fraud and monkey shines his supporters pull.

    Piven is not saying there will be civil war in the spring, but forecasting that the Occupy people will cause serious problems.

    So we will see.
