You gotta wonder if Barry is on the same page as the people of the United States or if he is still behaving like a Nigerian refugee? Obama claims that eliminating tax breaks to the oil industry will result in lower prices at the pumps. How can punishing oil companies result in lower prices? The dirty little secret is that speculators are mostly responsible for running up crude prices. Commodity speculators are like gamblers. They play the odds and the odds are that Obama wants gas prices to rise to punish Americans for their decadent oil consumption and to change the fabric of America. They are no dummies even if the majority of senators are. They will make money even while the president sends the Country down the road to socialism.
