    Gas prices climb to four-month high

    The Automobile Association of America says the national average for regular is now $3.75 a gallon. Thatís a 15-cent jump from a week ago.

    Gas prices climb to four-month high
    This is such Bull....What the hell is going on here? 4 years ago when gas prices were $3.57 a gallon we got this from Obama...



    If you watch the first minute of this video from 2008, using an Indianapolis gas station as a prop to spew his rhetoric you get a real feeling of just how dishonest, and cynical this man is.

    At that time gas as I said was $3.57 per gallon, today the national average was $3.79 and experts on the industry say that this spring and summer it will be no surprise to see gas go over $4.00 per gallon.

    This is such Crap! Obama policies have artificially inflated the price of gas to make his gigantic failures in green energy seem necessary, IOW, he has created a fake crisis to justify the waste of our money in ventures like Fisker, whom now is being eyed by the Chinese for purchase, AFTER we flushed $500 million down their toilet....

    What say you?

    Let it reach $5.00. Only way to waken the comatose public is to hurt them in the pocketbook.
    Get unemployment to 12%. A patriotic is anything legal that will collapse the federals in
    Washington.

    I don't think that would work...All you would have are the poor, and working poor, now encroaching into the middle classes a confiscatory taxation that is hidden, and would zap any power for the economy to recover at all....

    Get unemployment to 12%.
    Real numbers suggest it is higher than that now.

    I don't subscribe to the "burn it down" theory of fixing our problems...That would be horrible.

    It is around $3.70 in my corner of the woods so I guess I should feel like I am getting a bargain when I fill up

    Yeah, sad isn't it? If Obama is so for the "little guy" how could he possibly look at this situation, and NOT do something to mitigate the economic hammer being dropped on the middle, and poor class in this country?

    I blame QE3. Or is it 4?

    Devalue the dollar enough and the price of foreign oil shoots up, driving gas prices up over $5.

    Well the answer is pretty simple--Obama is more worried about having good exhibits at his Presidential Library and having rich fat cats build it for him than he is the "Little guy". Nobody wins the WH without blowing rich people and corporations--the only difference between the two parties is which CEO's get the lap dance.

    Very good Calamity. Yes oil is bought and sold on the world market with greenbacks.

    The dollar plunges and gas prices increase.

    A weak dollar also helps US exports but right now with so many families struggling, its the increasing gas prices thats leaving their mark.

    Obama has been the banks and Wall Streets best buddy.

    Its surreal, with his "eat the rich" rhetoric and so many people buying into it.
