    Which is why it was insane for the other poster to suggest they were so low due to a bad economy... for the corollary of such logic would be as I said.

    Demand and investment where down to the recession, which drove gas prices down. Demand and investment is now up, which drives the price up. This is not complex stuff.

    Gas prices are driven by many other factors than the economy. Oil prices are affected by factors that are not American caused. America hasn't built a refinery since the dawn of time so we don't have proper competition.

    I would say in such an instance that Romney wins handily; otherwise.... tossup, maybe bare edge to Romney just because of the poor economy.


    Later Edit: unless Romney does something stupid that reinforces the negative image that the administration is trying to pin on him. Right now it's not gaining traction, but Romney could always do something to cause it to. In such an instance, narrow victory to Obama in the popular vote with a slightly better victory in the electoral vote.

    Who is the Kenyan-born Marxist, that is in the white house? There is a guy named Obama, but he is from hawaii, basically the United States. Umm, he isn't a marxist, but I believe he is a democrat, sorry. They aren't the same thing. Next time try not to sound to ignorant.

    Oh, never mind, I see you are shooting from the same 'side' as the guy that made the initial comment. It all fits in place now.

    Obama. Romney has shot himself in the foot with guns ranging from a bb gun to a rifle. As soon as the artillery gunners get all aligned, Mitt can kiss this campaign goodbye

    Well, that is one way to actually avoid adressing the points.
