Doesn't matter, nitwit.
Oil and NG production are up under Obama.
Way up compared to 'oilman' Bush. LOL
Your pathetic attempts to belittle that fact are amusing and indicative of your ignorance.
Gas prices was $1.89 when Obama took office. Are you going to blame Obama policies for the high gas prices?

Actually, federal land leasing for oil drilling went down under Obama. It does matter nit wit.

I just donated some more to the Grimes campaign, aren't they getting ready to have a debate? I see where McConnell wants to set up the rules and Grimes has said that he isn't gonna be able to dictate how the forum will be...He doesn't want a life audience and no questions asked...He wants to have a debate where he and her asks the questions. She wants an audience and for them and the moderator to do the asking...Old Mitch is scared to death...But in his case how could you tell the difference?
McConnell learned from the rigged Presidential debates, as should the Republicans in 2016....

no more lying porkers like Candy Crowley....

You obviously not a big-picture kinda guy either, huh? We the other team, dawg, we the "global warmin'" whiners... cheaper gasoline is not a net positive in our eyes... In the same way we got no use fo' that fat assed wife of yours stuffin' the brats into the Explorer fo' a quick trip to Burger King fo' some nuggets... You keep tryin' to find ways to stimulate the economy and encourage mo' "growth," but I don' want you to do either of those things... I want to see you on your knees beggin' god to kill you befo' you drown in your own urine..... I DO recognize that that last part diverges from the views of many of the less radical members of my own tribe...

"Growth," any growth, is a very, very bad thing... In the very near future it'll be the countries that shepherd their natural resources and curtail their incessant breeding who will own what little is left of the planet, a planet destroyed by the greedy obsessive fears of "THE STRIVERS"....

By Terence P. Jeffrey
( CNSNews.com )- For the first time ever, the average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity in the United States has broken through the 14-cent mark, climbing to a record 14.3 cents in June, according to data released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Before this June, the highest the average price for a KWH had ever gone was 13.7 cents, the level it hit in June, July, August and September of last year.
The 14.3-cents average price for a KWH recorded this June is about 4.4 percent higher than that previous record.
Average Price for a KWH of Electricity
Typically, the cost of electricity peaks in summer, declines in fall, and hits its lowest point of the year during winter. In each of the first six months of this year, the average price for a KWH hour of electricity has hit a record for that month. In June, it hit the all-time record.
Although the price for an average KWH hit its all-time record in June, the seasonally adjusted electricity price index--which measures changes in the price of electricity relative to a value of 100 and adjusts for seasonal fluctuations in price--hit its all-time high of 209.341 in March of this year, according to BLS. In June, it was slightly below that level, at 209.144.
Back in June 1984, the seasonally adjusted price index for electricity was 103.9—less than half what it was in June 2014.
Electricity prices have not always risen in the United States. The BLS has published an annual electricity price index dating back to 1913. It shows that from that year through 1947, the price of electricity in the United States generally trended down, with the index dropping from 45.5 in 1913 to 26.6 in 1947.
Electricity Price Index 1913-2013
In the two decades after that, electricity prices were relatively stable, with the index still only at 29.9 in 1967—an increase of 12.4 percent over two decades.
However, from 2003 to 2013, the annual electricity price index increased from 139.5 to 200.750, a climb of almost 44 percent.
So far, overall annual electricity production peaked in the United States in 2007. Per capita electricity production also peaked in 2007, based on calculations made using data published by the Energy Information Administration and the Census Bureau.
However, in the first four months of this year (January through April)--according to the July edition of the Monthly Energy Review released yesterday by the Energy Information Administration--overall electricity production was up, with the nation having generated a total of 1,329,042 million KWH. That is more than the 1,281,300 million KWH produced in the first four months of 2013---and it is also more than the 1,298,675 million KWH generated in the first four months of the peak production year of 2007.
According to the Census Bureau, however, the resident population of the United States increased from 300,888,674 in April 2007 to 317,787,997 in April 2014. So, per capita electricity production in the first four months of 2014 (0.004182 million KWH per person) was less than the per capita electricity production in the first four months of 2007 (0.004316 million KWH per person).

ZIP codes 20137
Broad Run is a small, unincorporated community in Fauquier County, Virginia. It is on Bust Head Road just north of Interstate 66 and State Route 55, near the Prince William County line. Broad Run is named after the waterway that flows through the town. It has its own ZIP Code of 20137 and its own post office, although the post office, while having the Broad Run name, serves a much larger area.
The town of Broad Run was a thriving community in the late 19th century and early 20th century. The decline of the railroads spelled the demise of the town, and all that is left of the town proper is less than five homes from that period, and a few stone foundations and chimneys for buildings that no longer exist. A ramp for loading freight trains still exists on the still active Norfolk Southern freight line, but is covered with weeds and in such disrepair as to be no longer useful. The most notable historical site in Broad Run is Chapman’s Mill, aka Beverley’s Mill, which can be found two-thirds of a mile ESE from the center of the town of Broad Run. The Battle of Thoroughfare Gap, a seemingly inconsequential but eventually very important battle of the American Civil War, was fought at Chapman's Mill. The Thoroughfare Gap Battlefield and Galemont are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1][2]
The Broad Run zip code is an almost exclusively residential zip code which is mostly in Fauquier County VA, with the northeast section in Prince William County. The few businesses that can be found in the Broad Run zip code are generally home businesses or agricultural businesses. Notably, Sharkawi Farms grows a wide variety of spices that are sold locally and Meriwether Vineyard is home to Pearmund Cellars Winery. The Broad Run zip code, at its southern edge, also contains what was historically the town of New Baltimore. Much of what is currently considered the modern-day New Baltimore is not in the Broad Run zip code.
Several old building foundations and graveyards may be found in the large wooded areas in the Broad Run zip code, some dating back over 200 years.
Thanks idiot, I have never been there and I'm only about two hundred miles south of there up in the Jefferson Forest. And loving it...Moron.

You tell a lie repeatedly and people begin to naively believe it. That is what the liberals do. They distort over and over again until it catches on. Conservatives do not have a war on women.
