    He is mostly responsible. Its what he wants. Look at his energy policies He has none other than to send us back to the middle ages using the sun and wind to power us. All he need do is say we are going to unleash all our energy resources and the speculators would speculate down instead of up.

    Only fools think that more drilling will reduce prices. At BEST more drilling will slow the rise of prices.
    Only a fool could think it wont.

    Want to explain to me how increasing global supply by less than 1% after projected increases in demand from BRIC countries will reduce prices?

    Or you can run away. I'm betting you'll run away.

    Very little. Summer time, turmoil in the middle east, and the simple upward trend of oil prices are the likely largest culprits. Obama likely influenced it somewhat with the ban in the Gulf during that time and his policies are likely driving speculators to buy in ways that raise the price due to his policies not painting a good picture for oil. However, outside of that I think he's had little real influence on the price.

    Now, I think there's things he hasn't done that would've had a POSITIVE influence on bringing prices down. However, not taking action to me isn't necessarily him "influencing" something unless he was specifically taking action to not take action (such as the gulf oil ban). So I don't consider that part of his "influence" on the prices of gas. Its too indirect of an association for me to really attribute it.
    The gulf drilling ban has not stopped a single drop of oil from hitting the market. It takes longer than this for a site to come online and start actually delivering oil.

    Given the math involved, actually, there wont be any significant impact no matter how much we drill.

    Solar panels used to power electric/hybrid vehicles... that's your idea of the middle ages?

    You people are going to have to stop worshipping your Messiah and realize the incompetent boob does very little that's right.

    Some particular moron ordered drilling in the Gulf of Mexico stopped.

    Figure it out.

    Well, deepwater drilling, and in response to the Gulf a**holetastrophe.

    Yeah, that's the quality of response the Mayor expects.

    The high gasoline prises is a worldwide problem, only international greedy Oil companies are guilty.
