    If the predictions are on track and we go into the summer of 2012 with an average gas price of $4.50 (ish) a gallon, then what happens to our electricity bills? If the average household pays about $100.00 a month now, what will it be when it's 85 to 100 degrees out?
    This issue hasn't been brought up yet on the news, but let's all just wait and see what Obama and the White House has to say and tell the nation come June/July when the average American is already suffering as it is with gas&food prices.
    Will The Left Keep Blaming Bush ?

    Oh yes, and yet Obama will keep taking his million dollar vacations while over half of us are still suffering financially,,yet Obama speaks for the poor and middle class? Will O'Bozo be off to Marthas Vinyard again for 20 or so days when America will be in some crisis once again come August?

    They have been saying for years that gas will hit 5 bucks a gallon, the closest it ever came to thet was during Bush. What did he do? Nothing. There is really nothing much the president can do. But your type seems to think that the president has enough power to force prices down, well they really don't. it is controlled by the people on Wall Street and the gas producers. The only way a president could change that is by nationalisation of the industry, which we will never see in the USA.

    If you worked 24/7 and had the type of job the president has, you'd be trying to get away as much as possible also.

    Poor babys, just hoping for some sort of disaster to lay at our President's door. Given the present candidates that you are fielding, that is what it will take. Or maybe three disasters.

    Obama works? When? He's been on a perpetual state of vacation since 1/20/2009.

    if Obama was really concerned over the financial hardship of 4.00 gas, he would at least give the millions of Americans on welfare/unemployment a check for about 2000.00 to help them out with the cost of gas and food,,,but of course he wont,,his golf outings and vacations are more important.
