    Proof is at the pump

    The Anti-Energy President

    He really meant it when he said prices would "skyrocket."

    The policy of the Obama administration has been not to increase the energy supplies that are so critical to our nation's economic health, but to limit them, to increase energy prices, and to make energy more expensive.

    Eliminating tax deductions for the oil and gas industries is at the top of the President's list, which would increase the price of gasoline and home heating oil for everyone.

    This would not increase prices, it would just shut down businesses and put people out of work.

    Of course he meant it. Not just gasoline prices, but all energy prices. Right now the pain is at the pump, later this winter the pain will be in the furnace.
