Obama, the retributional taskmaster, will whip us into shape, until we properly pay in accordance with what he thinks is proper.

Simon Legree on one shoulder, and Nat Turner on the other?

Don't look for the Oblamer to do anything. The higher the price goes, the greater the revenue the gvmt gets.

Well, this is still cheap if they have their way of cap and trade.

We could be very well be paying $5.00 a gallon sooner rather than later because of greed and environmentalists.

But hey, Obama is our man right? He is the one to right our wrongs, heal our sick, give everyone our money {exceptions being rich Democrats, like Oprah}.

Capitalistic greed controls the oil prices NOT Obama. Fools such as you simply have to blame everything on someone they don't like. Well idiots, the price of oil is not his doing, but your ignorance and misunderstnading is your doing: Pathetic.

Taxes have nothing at all to do with it? Ethanol an absolute failure of an alternative fuel driving food cost higher has nothing to do with it?

Not drilling here but getting most of our oil from foreign countries that hate us has nothing to do with it?

You missed the sarcasm.

Obama followers are being mocked in this case because the liberal Democrat chant was "Bush's Oil Cronies" a couple of years ago when gas prices rose.

Conservatives understand economics and don't blame the government for the rise and fall of the commodity trading market.

One thing he could do is lift the offshore drilling ban as well as the refinery construction ban that has been in place for 35 years and counting.

Obarfa killed shale oil development the first day.
This would have really helped.
The moron in chief also makes it near impossible to
explore for oil here.
I guess he is saving it all for his running buddies
in the commie countries.

What a moron.

Now we pay, while he is off soon on another "vacation".
Just a union activist with no real world experience.

dpb: The messiah still gives you a thrill up your
leg, huh. Pathetic imbecil.

What is your fixation with ignorance and bigotry? You continually post garbage that is hateful and filled with inaccuracy -- ie. "pulled out of your a$$." Pull your head out of your dark cavern and see the light you old homophobic bigot.

Hmmm, isn't it about time for Udall to launch another of his useless "why are gas prices so high in NM" campaigns? The same ones that have never once yielded an answer.

We have the prices we do because of creative means of keeping them there. When they fall we'll all read in the newspaper how much more the oil companies made in profits than for the same period last year.

You have answered twice after not only calling me ignorant, but missing my sarcasm aimed at the Obama electorate.

Please let me know how greater supply wouldn't drop the price.

Wow, you really do a lot of name calling, don't you?....must not have much of a factual basis for debate.

I was wondering when someone was going to insert the Bush and/or Cheney names. You talk about power. One man can control the WW oil prices. That is amazing. I mean really the Saudis, Venezuelans, Canadians, Mexicans, Iranians, Iraqis and all the other oil producing nations answer to good ol' GW. And they think there is power in Brussels. One man can sit in Crawford, Texas and control the oil and gas prices of the entire United States. WOW. We dumb people understand economics and the commodity trading markets.
