    This Administration seems completely lost at this point. A rudderless ship for sure. The One heads over to Brazil and promises their Oil Companies loans for them to drill for Oil yet at the same time sits around calling American Oil Companies "Evil" and wont let them drill. It really is an awful Anti-American policy. To answer your question though,the usual suspects will forgive this but most Independent Voters will not. And they'll decide the 2012 Elections. $5 Gas will be catastrophic for the Economy. Lets hope it doesn't get that bad.

    They think high prices for gas and other energy is the ticket to developing alternatives. And maybe they're right, but it's gonna bite 'em in the balls long before anything viable comes along.

    We're already seeing a large drop off in demand, which means less demand, less money being spent less, products being moved, less money being made, less tax's being paid few new jobs created....This is the house that Obama Built

    If the world oil/supply demand equation were as it is today, and if the U.S. were somehow magically energy independent... gasoline would still approach $5/gallon by Mem Day.

    We have to have a recovery don't we?

    Everyone pretty much already spends all they amke so the only way is to increase prices on things they already buy.
