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.
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.
