    Bachmann: I'll get gas under $2

    Let the crazy promises begin!!

    Bachmann: I'll get gas under $2 - Dan Berman and Molly Ball - POLITICO.com

    “Under President Bachmann, you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again. That will happen.”
    How do you think that'll happen. Isn't oil freely traded? I guess you could nationalize the oil industry and regulate gas prices. That would be nothing like socialism...

    Pfffffffffft.

    OPEC likes the fact that gas is as high as it is, and if they could have it their way, it'd be higher. They're never gonna let it go that low again.

    And if it did happen, we'd see a few investors doing the following thing.

    Perhaps her plan is to allow for more ready access to the existing US oil fields that have been unused. Assuming she isnt advocating for nationalization (which is a pretty safe assumption considering her position on the expanded role of government) the only way she could influence greatly reduced gas prices is to increase supply or dramitically reduce demand. Might be interesting to actually know her plan.

    Realistically given current trends, the only way it'll happen (and it will be shortlived) is to release a very, very large amount of our SOR. We'll have a couple of days of low prices followed by mass hysteria and spikes in commodity trading.

    Any other option is probably years in the making and wouldn't happen during her presidency. MAYBE if she got a second term.

    I was thinking we'd have to go heavy on alternatives while simultaneously going heavy on US drilling and production. Lowering U.S. demand, avoiding OPEC oil, and pushing the hell out of electric/carbon/NG vehicles.

    Reminds me of a more concrete example of "Change" and "Yes We Can." It worked on Democrats to believe in it, it might work with Republicans this time around.
