I think some people need to educate themselves on OPEC, and understand how gas is priced.
about $1.30 of each is a built in tax. Oh and Our top 3 importers of crude oil is 1. Canada, 2. Saudi Arabia. 3. Mexico. We get more then twice as much crude oil from our neighbors as we get from Opec.
well once again you don't understand the role of OPEC on prices.. also you are incorrect, more oil is being produced by the US then in 2008.
he got gas prices and employment mixed up , he was supost to increase employment and decrease gas prices. OOPS
It is easy to get confused when you are trying to suck up to each and every special interest group!
I thought it was still Bush's fault like everything else! Obama is sold out to a zero pollution agenda that says high energy costs are the price of clean air. Prices will only go higher while he wastes more tax payer money on "green" energy that either does not work or is too expensive to survive without continued government handouts.
World events, not presidents, have had the biggest impact on gas prices. Carter didn't cause the second Arab oil embargo, he scrambled to contain its effects. Clinton didn't cause Saudi Arabia to flood the market with oil in its attempt to regain discipline and control among OPEC members, although he benefited from it.
The last president to try to control prices was Nixon, and all he got was rationing and long lines at the pump.
Top 3 crude oil importers to America. 1. Canada. 2. Saudi Arabia. 3. Mexico. I didnt know Canada was a member of OPEC. LOL
Strange coincidence that all the marjor oil companies are republican owned ;-)
To be fair that's not in his power. Gas is actually at a record low price, adjusted for inflation, but since inflationary monetary policy is all that is keeping America going Obama is kinda powerless.
Them why reelect him?
Dunno, I'm English. If I could vote I'd go for Romney.
Eia.gov has historical data on gas prices. Gas was also up OVER $4 in 2008 as well. It was both at its lowest and HIGHEST in 2008. Fact check is a wonderful thing. And so easy to do.
bush did it.
It is not in his best interest to do so. Look at how much money he gets from oil companies.
Nothing. Because the President can not do anything. And gas prices in March 1981were near $3.65... so what???
