"No president has the power to increase or lower gas prices. Those are market forces!"

"It has nothing to do with the president."

"It really is out of this president's hands"

"Yesterday oil hit a record high, and politicians can't do a thing about it."

"The next time you hear a politician say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete B.S. If Americans want lower gas prices, cut back. Sell those SUVs. Ride a bike when you can."

Then tell us why DUMBO said we'd see 5 dollars a gallon gas 3 years ago.

Quote:
Bush Lowered Gas Prices,
Obama Is Raising Them

Big Government, by AWR Hawkins


When gasoline prices rose under George W. Bush, the Democrats went crazy with accusations of how he and Vice President Dick Cheney were putting their allegiance to “big oil” over their allegiance to the American people. However, even amid their unfounded criticisms, Bush was able to bring gas prices down to approximately $1.84 a gallon simply by pushing for expanded drilling both on the continental U.S. and offshore. (For the record, the Democrats who were criticizing Bush for high gas prices also did their best to keep him from expanding drilling.)

Enter President Barack Obama. Under him, when gas prices began to rise, he laughed them off by telling one American to trade his SUV for a vehicle that got better mileage. And as the prices continued to rise, he made his often stated observation that green energy is the only long term solution for high energy prices. Then he rejected the Keystone Pipeline, which would have brought nearly a million barrels of Canadian crude to American refineries each day. Most recently, in a desperate attempt to get Americans to play along with his pin-the-high-gas-price-on-Exxon game, Obama has called for raising taxes on oil companies (as if increasing their cost of operations won’t increase the price we pay for the product they produce).


Oh, and I almost forgot, early on in this process he also told us to be sure our tires were aired up properly so we could get the best possible mileage out of our vehicles. And even before Obama was saying and doing these things, people he had selected to serve in his administration, like Senator Ken Salazar—now Obama’s Secretary of the Interior—said that even $10 a gallon gasoline wouldn’t convince him to allow expanded offshore drilling.

So why did gas prices fall under Bush, once they had spiked, whereas they are rising under Obama with no sign of abating?

WaPo/ABC Poll: Only 28% Approve of Obama’s Handling of Rising Gas Prices

Image

But . . . but . . . but . . . big oil!

Quote:
A third of all Americans say surging gasoline prices have caused serious financial hardship in their households, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, with more than six in 10 reporting some pinch.

President Obama continues to be harshly reviewed for his handling of the situation, even as he eludes some of the direct blame.

Feelings of hardship and public judgment on the president are little changed over the past month, despite continually rising prices, suggesting some may be accommodating themselves to higher pump prices. The Department of Energy reports that over the past four weeks, the average price of a gallon has risen 11 cents to $3.94 across the country.

A year ago, the last time gas prices flirted with the $4-a-gallon-mark, more than four in 10 reported serious financial hardship as a result. And when gas did hit a record high of $4.01 in June 2008, more than half — 51 percent — reported a severe pinch.

The political angle on gas prices extends beyond hardship to where people place blame. Obama is taking a beating in public opinion on his dealings with gas prices. Just 28 percent approve of the job he is doing in this area; 62 percent disapprove, with half saying they disapprove “strongly.” Those are among the worst ratings on any issue during his presidency.

Well Done, DUMBO: Oil Prices Spike After Obama Announces Crackdown On “Speculators”

Image

Obama reeks of sheer incompetence.

Quote:
Crude oil prices have risen over a dollar today, despite President Obama’s promise to “crackdown” on Wall Street “speculators” that he believes are driving up the price of oil.

Crude oil opened at $102.66 per barrel. It cost $104.04 per barrel at 8:58 am (one minute after the White House Fact Sheet on “cracking down on manipulation in oil markets” hit my inbox). By 9:32 am, the price had risen to $104.94 per barrel. The price has been as as high as $105.07 today, according to Yahoo Finance and Reuters.

Brendan Buck, Press Secretary for Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, jumped on the correlation. “Price of oil tumbles on news of Obama crackdown on manipulation,” he tweeted sarcastically, adding “Actually, the reverse [of] that.”

Trump: President Cut Deal with Saudis to Keep Oil Prices Down Until Election

CNBC HOST: Donald, you see the OPEC news this morning? Venezuela wants OPEC to stop pumping more, overproducing, they are saying, that, because Saudi Arabia is pumping above the limits it's supposed to be doing to help us out a little bit and Venezuela is complaining and right now you're looking at oil prices at about back around $82.

DONALD TRUMP: That's still very high, Becky, they should be at $30 if you look at free market. I think Saudi Arabia is doing Obama a big favor. Look, you have to do be a favor, I have to get elected, you can't do it like you've been doing the last three years driving it up to $150 because that's where it's going and I think Saudi Arabia is doing Obama a big fat favor. I think he asked for the favor and prices are coming down, but also the economy's going bad so maybe it won't help that much. but as soon as -- assuming if Obama got elected, you're going to see something with oil like you've never seen before, it will go through the roof. The favor will be repaid many times over.

Gas prices set record as summer draws to a close

The price of gasoline is setting a record as the summer draws to a close.

AAA says drivers paid an average of $3.72 per gallon Monday, which is the highest price on record for Aug. 20. The auto club says more daily highs are likely over the next few weeks.

The national average has risen nearly 12 percent since July 1 because of higher oil prices, and some problems with refineries and pipelines. But it has stabilized over the past few days and many analysts still expect the price of gas to fall after Labor Day.

Meanwhile, oil prices are falling as concerns resurface about Europe's economy. Benchmark oil fell 61 cents to $95.40 in New York. Brent crude dropped 44 cents to $113.27 in London.
