    Just think of it. The average price for a gallon of gas back on Bushes last day was 1.84 a gallon according to Consumer Reports.

    Average gas prices--January 26, 2009

    Today it is 4 bucks over the majority of the country. In California, that bastion of insanity on the Left Coast the average price is 4.61 per gallon.

    Gas prices soar on refinery, pipeline woes - SFGate

    Yeppers, Obama is an oil mans wet dream....too bad the little people get screwed over so that Obama's buddies can make bazillions of dollars.

    Make up your mind. Either Obama hates rich people and is trying to destroy them, or he's in their pockets and doing favors for them.

    I love finding data like this and the libs can't complain about the source:D

    But the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics pointed out, "Tallying contributions by employees in the industry and their families...Exxon, Chevron and BP have all contributed more money to Obama than to McCain."

    After his election, Obama followed in Bush's footsteps, appointing another former Chevron director, Gen. James Jones, as his national security adviser. In 2008, Chevron paid Jones $290,000 for serving on its board for seven months--from May until December.


    hehehehe and the source is.....[​IMG]

    The economy was shrinking and shedding 7 or 800 thousand jobs a month at the end of Bush's presidency.

    Less demand for fuel. Lower prices.

    Yeah. Sure. Because your two options were the only viable world views. Nice box you live in.
