I don’t expect the Obama Administration to do a darn thing about the fact that gas prices have more than doubled since he took office 3 years ago. Last week, Energy Secretary Chu testifying before Congress made it clear that the energy plan of the Obama administration did not include lowering the cost of oil. In fact, three and a half years ago, Mr. Chu, before becoming Secretary, had this to say about his goal for gas prices:
“Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe”~The Wall Street Journal 10/2008
Tonight, I took a photograph of the gas pump after filling my mini-van up. It looks like the Obama Administration has achieved Secretary Chu’s goal of boosting the price of gas! I encourage everybody to take a picture of the gas pump and send it to Obama via Twitter at @BarackObama
And, when a liberal starts talking about the evil oil companies remind them that the government actually makes more off each gallon sold than the oil companies do!
As middle class Americans pay more and more per gallon of gas and more and more for all the consumer items that are shipped or manufactured using energy sources, nobody should be surprised to find little help from a president who admitted that the price of energy would necessarily skyrocket under his plan.
I guess that is one promise kept. Thanks for nothing!
