    Gas went up when Bush was pres because most of his terms were an economic boom period. Contrast that to the current high gas prices in the worst economy since the great depression and you see what Obama's anti fossil fuel policies get you.

    LOL the apologists begin. So you're saying the price rose above $4 because we were in a boom? Gimme a break. Is that the best you have?

    Obama wants gas prices to go up. He wanted it to be gradual, but definitely wanted them to go up. He wants dependence on alternative energy that isn't equal to oil yet. He has the power to put in measures that would lower gas prices, but stubbornly chooses not to. Why? Because he has special interests he wants to keep happy rather than doing what is good for the American people.

    And yet, with the stock market reaching record highs on a regular basis, gas still isn't as expensive as it was at its highest under Bush.

    Get off the partisan nonsense.

    Even if this were true, and it's not, we SHOULD be putting more resources in alternative energy, particularly renewable energy.

    Gas prices are not going to go down, at least not until alternative energy becomes more available and more widely used. Also keep in mind, gas prices went up under Bush, not Obama.

    Please do tell what part of what I said was not true.

    Presidents do not have control over a globally priced and traded commodity.

    Period.

    And the fact of the matter is gas prices in most of the Western world are alot higher than in the United States.

    Gas prices are at historic highs all over the place and it's not the fault of Obama or his policies, it's not the fault of Bush or his policies...

    The part where Obama wants gas prices to go up and the part where he has the unilateral power to push gas prices down.

    Video snipped
    Actually they do. Being one of the most populated countries and the largest customer for that commodity makes us, and the POTUS, the elephant in the room. The POTUS can, with a swipe of the pen release the gas and oil reserves. He/she can loosen or tighten regulatory enforcement upon the industry. Oil and gas leases and how they are maintained - the POTUS has great power here.

    Gas prices are high because demand is high, good old capitalism at work here folks. Despite the job situation, the economy is purking at a good pace. Look at the stock market.

    Here is an interactve map of gas prices in the U.S.

    No, your portrayal of me would be wrong. Perhaps a bit of partisan hackery at work.

    My only point is to illustrate the hypocricy of the left which includes the MSM.
