I know a lot of people like to blame Obama for high gas prices, and how soon they forget the hell that was the goerge Bush years. After 9/11 gas prices shot up to 4 dollars a gallon repeatedly and for long periods. George was responsible for allowing the southeast to suffer over a month of 6-12 dollar gas in georgia, gas rationing in NC, and huge gas shortages in VA, northern florida, georgia, NC, SC, and AL. For 3 weeks I litterally got up at 6 in the morning, went out and chased down gas trucks because by 8 the stations were sold out. NC limited you to 10 gallons per day. Georgia did not cap their gas prices during the shortage and saw some gas stations selling gas for 12 dollars a gallon. This was not the 1970s, this was around 2005. The reason? Supposedly for the first time in history a hurricane stopped gasoline production at refineries and for some reason they could not divert gas from anywhere else in the US to cover the shortage. The highways were never blocked or closed, despite thousands stranded on the the southern ease coast hunting for the rare gas station with gas so they could get out.For some reason, despite a number of hurricanes hitting the same areas far worse in the Obama years, that has never happened again. Obama has reduced gas prices repeatedly during his time as president. Through strategic use of US oil reserves, and deals with places lie saudi arabia to increase oil production marked for the US, he has increased supply and lowered prices while they rose time and again. No president can declare oil prices at a certain level, but when he needed to he did what a president could do and increased supply through the methods he could do. For the Bush years we saw a steady rise in gas prices. The first time oil companies lowered gas prices was when they increased demands for hybrids and alternatives by choking the US on 4 dollar plus gas which george never did a thing to lower, and he even kept destroying supplies with foreign wars. George never encouraged alternative energy sources, and instead linked us as best as he could to the oil companies who despite supposed increases in costs continued to make record profits over and over again under his piss poor leadership. It is the same thing we can expect from his friend Mittens. If you are concerned about oil prices, the US addiction to oil, and the corrupt oil companies destroying the US for their record profits then Obama is your choice. There may be better people out there, but they certainly are not the republicans.
