    OPEC keeps prices and supply rather steady.... Without them both supply and price would bounce all over the place.

    According to the WSJ, hardly a "liberal source", that is simply not the case. US OIL PRODUCTION BY YEAR. I'm not crediting Obama, this might be in spite of him instead of because of him. But core facts are, well, core facts.

    That is called necessity.

    Gas prices, while not cheap, aren't that high in relativity to other commodities. How is it that $35 an ounce gold is now $1300? A nickel cup of coffee is now $2.39? It's just inflation, not a sinister plot.
    Well to here REpublicans tell it everything Obama does is a plot against America considering he is a Muslim sypathizer, who was not born here!

    So how'd it get to $3.72 the first time before Obama was elected? Did he do that too?

    Here is the chart for 10 years. Note the trend. You're mistaken in your claims.

    I'll run along. As I wrote, I don't do the scramble game.
    See, I read the chart and see $1.43 after Bush's first four years and it going up steadily until the economy crashed. I must be reading this wrong because it doesn't explain how that $4.12 in July of '08 is Obama's fault.

    That's also when the whole economy crashed. Damn that Obama forcing Bush to raise gas prices against his will.

    Really, so when you think someone sneezes in the general direction of the M.E. prices of oil should raise $20 per barrel?
