Americans will save at the pump if Michele Bachmann is elected president, the Minnesota Republican said Tuesday.

“The day that the president became president gasoline was $1.79 a gallon. Look at what it is today,” she said at an event in Greenville, S.C.. “Under President Bachmann, you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again. That will happen.”

The average price for a gallon of gasoline is currently $3.58 per gallon, according to AAA.

She's grasping at straws.

The market will decide what the price of energy is, not the POTUS.

Bachmann didn’t detail how she would cut the price of gasoline, which is tied to the global price of oil.

Geez, what a surprise!

As empty or bullshit promises go with Presidents/candidates "Read my lips, no new taxes", "create shovel ready jobs", etc... this is par for the course

I think in June 2008, Crude Oil was $147 per barrel.

Today Crude Oil is $83 per barrel.

Why is Gasoline 100% higher when international crude oil price have fallen 50%?

Today Gasoline must be $2 per gallon because international crude oil price have fallen 50%.
