In an earlier post I said gas was around $2.80 when Bush left office so gas going under 2 bucks was a reasonable thing to say. I was wrong, gas was $1.79 when Bush left office. Gas getting back under 2 bucks seems very reasonable indeed. gasbuddy.com
Feeling pain at the pump? Gas prices have doubled since Mr. Obama took office. According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas has arrived on average throughout California, and a number of other states are headed in that direction.
