    President Obama on gas prices at the debate:
    "Think about what the Governor just said. He said when I took office, the price of gasoline was $1.80, $1.86, why is that? Because the economy was on the verge of collapse."
    Obama: Gas Prices Were Low Because Economy Was On Verge Of Collapse | RealClearPolitics

    WOW...! What a novel solution to high gas prices!
    Just have more people unemployed!
    Have a lower GDP!

    Is that the way Obama sees the economy? The more the economy gets worse the LOWER gas prices will go???

    AND you notice Obama DID NOT answer the question from Phillip Tricolla.

    QUESTION: Your energy secretary, Steven Chu, has now been on record three times stating it’s not policy of his department to help lower gas prices. Do you agree with Secretary Chu that this is not the job of the Energy Department?

    NO ANSWER from Obama as to Chu's comment.

    It should be noted that Chu WANTED gas prices to go higher and I quote:

    “Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

    Where's your outrage post highlighting that Romney ignored the question about which loopholes and deductions he would specifically eliminate?

    Nope. I responded to the 2nd post in the thread.

    Thanks for asking though.

    I guess your right, Obama really is haunted by Chu's comments on increasing gas prices to European levels. Doesn't bode well for Obama. I stand corrected.

    Questions either answered with a new and different question/topic....that's how it's done. Politicians are masters at this tactic.

    Gas prices are determined by supply and demand. We will pay no less than whatever China and the rest of the world are willing to pay.
