Do a History check on gas prices over the last decade. We are seeing the same run-up as we did with Bush during hit late term. As much as I don't like the guy ( ABO ) he is not responsible..

Yes he is – in very large part. The primary reason gas is so high is that the Chinese and Indians have been bidding it up and buying much of the refined product produced in the US. And how is THAT BHO’s fault, you will ask, right? Because of his refusal to reduce spending (except on the military) that has resulted in several trillions of dollars of increase in the deficit over and above the pre-existing trend. That has in turn devalued the dollar. The Chinese, Indians, et als. therefore have had plenty of dollars that are cheaper and cheaper in terms of their currency to buy up oil to fuel their expanding economies; and have been doing exactly that. And THAT is why you may lay the blame for the high price of gas squarely at Obama’s door with a high degree of confidence and a clear conscience.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

I can always use another 1911.

When Obama was elected, gasoline was under $2 a gallon. Heck, it was $1.30 a gallon in PWC. We're coming back to $4 a gallon now. There's talk about $5 a gallon gas by summer time. Mr. Wishy Washy/Hopey Changey isn't helping things, he's making things worse.

The President (which ever one is in office) has very little to do with the price of gas, you can argue otherwise until your head turns purple and falls off, but it's still wrong.

Like I said, I don't like Obama anymore then you fellas, but this is one thing that is not his fault, although I will say he is not doing much in the way of fighting back against it since it helps him push his greener energy policies...

I repeat, his hyperinflationary spending and budget strategy is doing more to increase gas prices than Obama could do on purpose if he was trying his best.

That and cutting offshore drilling permits and stopping the pipeline project. While these are relatively small things, this sends a message to speculators that playing ping pong with oil contracts is safer than it otherwise would be.
