    As much as Republicans have tried blaming Obama for high gasoline prices, it would be quite ironic if it is the dropping gas prices that help put Obama over the top. By tomorrow, gas prices will plunge below the $3.00 mark in Toledo, and from everything I am reading, there is no end in site as prices are expected to continue on a downward spiral through Thanksgiving.

    Of course the President doesn't decide the gas prices.

    However................try telling it to the rabid rw's who blame him everytime it goes over 4.00.

    Most people that keep up on things would know that it's because they're switching over to a winter blend gas.....has nothing to do with Obama.

    I agree...the blend change may drop the price 50 cents a gallon or more. People vote their pocketbooks and they will be fatter with a lower gas price. It could be just enough to put O pver the top. We will see...

    When Bush was in office he was solely responsible for gasoline prices
    Now Obama is in office and when blamed for high gas prices his lemmings said Obama has nothing to do with the price at the pump.
    Now it's being suggested that when prices fall right around election day Obama is going to get credit for lower prices at the pump.....

    Am I in the middle of a nightmare with the Libs on the board here...
    You can't make this shit up...

    No one is giving credit to Obama for lower gas prices. What we said was if it takes $30 to fill your tank each week, instead of $40, you feel better about the economy. The unemployment rate in Ohio has dropped and gas prices are plummeting. Maybe Willard needs to pick another hammer to beat Obama with. "The Economy" hammer may be on shakey ground in Ohio.
