Don't you remember obama telling you that with HIS energy policy FUEL PRICES WOULD NECESSARILY RISE. That's one promise he did keep.
Why would a president intentionally drive up oil/gas prices in an election year?
Because he wants to push alternative energy sources that have failed already but he will continue to do so
That and he's fairly confident the media won't hold his feet to the fire like they did Bush's when gas prices skyrocketed during his administration.
1/16/12 Gasoline at Dodge's Here in Foley, AL is $3.159/gallon
1/17/12 news that obama blocks pipeline hits the market.
1/18/12 Gasoline at Dodge's $3.229.
2/20/12 Gasoline at Dodge's $3.559
Draw any conclusions you want. Sure the Iran threat to close off oil has some effect, but effective diplomacy could have prevented that, had the administration been concerned with what gasoline costs the consumer.
Hell, his Energy Secretary thinks we should pay as much as Europe. It would seem as if he's right on track to accomplish that goal by the end of obama's second term.

Most of the rise is due to increased demand and a worthless $
You mean worldwide demand of course, right? US demand is down.

Big Mouth has pretty much announced to the cartels that they have nothing to fear from Americans because he has no intention of getting us off their oil supply. Hence the gas prices went up and will continue to go up. Remember that when you go to the polls.

Obama seeks to end oil industry tax breaks — again

President Barack Obama called today for boosting funding for pipeline safety and renewable energy while again proposing to roll back several tax breaks for the oil and gas industry.

In his fiscal 2013 budget proposal, submitted to Congress today, Obama proposed boosting research funding and extending tax credits for clean energy as well as providing more money for energy-efficiency programs. He also called for rolling back oil and gas “tax preferences” worth $40 billion over 10 years.

It is the fourth straight year Obama has called for rolling back tax breaks for the oil and gas industry, but that call — and the budget more generally — is largely a symbolic statement because it stands little chance to pass through Congress.

Obama teased at the proposals during his State of the Union address, in which he outlined what he called a national economic “blueprint.”

“It’s time to end the taxpayer giveaways to an industry that rarely has been more profitable, and double down on a clean-energy industry that never has been more promising,” he said.
.................

The proposal indicates that Obama wants to aggressively promote federal support of renewable energy, even amid continuing Republican criticism of the administration’s loan guarantee to the now-bankrupt company Solyndra LLC, a California solar-panel maker.

The only real hope for lowering the price of gasoline is to find an alternative that will either increase supply of energy availability or better an alternative with a lower cost.

The Administration is at least attempting to find alternatives and is primarily prevented from doing so by the opposition Rs that stress only Oil friendly applications.


Remember that when you go to the polls.

... and why are the Rs not crucified for their continued support of tax breaks for Oil Co.s that are expenses to the American public that is being railroaded by the same industry that is exporting to S America, American refined fuels and already have the highest profits of any industry on a world wide basis ???

Why gas prices are so high.
Cause the oil companies are allowed to retail price gas that has already been refined based on
what they (futures traders) think a barrell of oil will cost in the future. A future that has a war in it with Iran. And that scares the future traders so they have to run the price up so that the oil companies can post another year of record profits. And they make a lot of money.

Oh yea, and the oil companies and Wall street are pissed at Obama. So if they can hurt him. help the Repubs and make a fortune as well, well what greedy ******* wouldn't do that?

The fact that regular folk take a beating. Well, they call that collateral damage. Just don't drive as much. It only hurts for a little while.

Hope that answers your question.
The government collects more in taxes in this country than oil companies get in profit. They have to leave this country to get most of the "record profits" they earn. Demand outside the US is going up will demand is going down inside the US. The price is based on the dollar.

So what effect does that have on gas prices in America???

obama recently mandated a 56mpg average for new cars starting 2025. This will save us on gas and ONLY add $9700 onto the price of a new car. Doesn't that make you all warm and cozy. It's only money.

I had heard that if every passenger vehicle in the U.S. got 50mpg, we wouldn't need to import oil.
Pretty cool. I haven't verified that, tho.

When gas prices were high under GWB, the left mindlessly blamed him, as he was a "big oil" man.

Why are gas prices so high under The Obama, and how do those conditions differ from when GWB was President?
