Obama Administration Set on Hiking Gas




Soaring gasoline prices have turned into a major worry for many Americans. And the Obama administration is largely to blame, Republicans on the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform contend in a report.

“Key Obama administration figures have expressed a belief that Americans should pay more for energy — a pattern of actions shows the Administration is, in fact, pursuing an agenda to raise the price Americans pay for energy,” according to the report, released Monday.

Interesting.

Maybe Fonda's kid will solve the problem.

If they can get you to ask the wrong question,
it doesn't matter what the answer is.

Obama said it out right. I don't know why so many people haven't been paying attention to what he has been saying, all along.

The problem isn't that you're paying too much. It's obviously that you're paying too little. Because were exporting gasoline. Refineries are exporting gasoline to other countries because they'll pay more than we do. That's just good business,capitalism. Why would a refinery sell gasoline to you at $3.50 a gallon. When you can sell it for four dollars a gallon to some other country. As a stockholder I don't care where the gasoline is sold as long as my profits are up.

Do we have a gasoline shortage that I don't know about? If not, we aren't paying too little for it.

Well, I guess that answers the shortage question. The excess has to go somewhere and the EPA frowns on pouring it down the storm sewers.

Obama said everyone should be driving fuel efficient compact cars. I live on acreage, move trailers, haul large items, need 4x4 for snow and mud, haul livestock trailers, do construction. My livelyhood depends on my full size 1 ton Chevy truck. Obama wants be to drive a flexi fuel prius and turn me into a one man gay parade????

The guy is out of touch big time. The little flex fuel cars are made of plastic. Plastic comes from oil. Obama is a clear and present danger to the USA!
