President Obama has brought down the price of gas tremendously
in the last month or so. He certainly has my vote in November.

Well, I've read on here many times how gas prices and everything else is his fault. So the lower prices must be his fault too.

Don't you know? It's only Obama's fault when gas prices are high. When they go down it isn't because of anything he's done.

Gas prices are not low. You people need to learn economics. Gas prices have actually increased, I'll explain if you can understand. The price of oil has dropped nearly $30 a barrel in the past 2 months because oil is traded on a global market. The global market includes Europe, which is on the verge of complete collapse and it also includes china, which is in the midst of a moderate economic slowdown.

The US dollar has gained strength over this time due to the fact people are scared to invest their money in markets and other foreign currencies. As the price of oil decreases and the value of the dollar rises, it will drive down the cost of gasoline. But the question is how much? We have seen gas in this area go from $3.79 a gallon to $3.09 and now back up to $3.18. But based off the US dollar and current oil prices per barrel, what should gas really be?

Gas should currently be $2.59/gallon. It is currently over 20% above what it should be. The reason for this is because the US dollar is still very weak despite it's recent rise, due to the inflation of our currency from continually printing stimulus money. So, if the US dollar was actually worth 100% of it's value, then gas prices would be $2.59/gallon based off the current price of a barrel of oil.

I think in your attempt to call us ignorant, you missed the point.
We are not so stupid as to not know gas is too costly. I was
just tongue-in-cheek saying Obama is critized for percieved
negative things ,but not praised for positive things.

I didn't miss the point. You are giving credit to Obama for something that he didn't do. High commodity prices such as oil, corn, gold, sugar, etc. are a direct result of inflation, or excessively printing money that outpaces the need of the currency. The current downturn in oil prices is caused by world economies collapsing and investors turning to the US dollar as a safe haven.

My point is that despite people turning to our currency, the US dollar is still so weak it is forcing gas to be 20% above what it should be. This is a direct result of stimulus, and when QE3 is pushed through by the Obama administration, the dollar will take another hit forcing gas to go even higher. I would fully expect QE3 to happen around august/September so that hit of morphine can kick in full blast by election time to make our dying economy seem less terminal.

WASHINGTON -- A critical document from President Barack Obama's free trade negotiations with eight Pacific nations was leaked online early Wednesday morning, revealing that the administration intends to bestow radical new political powers upon multinational corporations, contradicting prior promises.

The leaked document has been posted on the website of Public Citizen, a long-time critic of the administration's trade objectives. The new leak follows substantial controversy surrounding the secrecy of the talks, in which some members of Congress have complained they are not being given the same access to trade documents that corporate officials receive.

"The outrageous stuff in this leaked text may well be why U.S. trade officials have been so extremely secretive about these past two years of [trade] negotiations," said Lori Wallach, director of Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch in a written statement.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) has been so incensed by the lack of access as to introduce legislation requiring further disclosure. House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has gone so far as to leak a separate document from the talks on his website. Other Senators are considering writing a letter to Ron Kirk, the top trade negotiator under Obama, demanding more disclosure.

The newly leaked document is one of the most controversial of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact. It addresses a broad sweep of regulations governing international investment and reveals the Obama administration's advocacy for policies that environmental activists, financial reform advocates and labor unions have long rejected for eroding key protections currently in domestic laws.

Under the agreement currently being advocated by the Obama administration, American corporations would continue to be subject to domestic laws and regulations on the environment, banking and other issues. But foreign corporations operating within the U.S. would be permitted to appeal key American legal or regulatory rulings to an international tribunal. That international tribunal would be granted the power to overrule American law and impose trade sanctions on the United States for failing to abide by its rulings.

The terms run contrary to campaign promises issued by Obama and the Democratic Party during the 2008 campaign.

"We will not negotiate bilateral trade agreements that stop the government from protecting the environment, food safety, or the health of its citizens; give greater rights to foreign investors than to U.S. investors; require the privatization of our vital public services; or prevent developing country governments from adopting humanitarian licensing policies to improve access to life-saving medications," reads the campaign document.

Yet nearly all of those vows are violated by the leaked Trans-Pacific document. The one that is not contravened in the present document -- regarding access to life-saving medication -- is in conflict with a previously leaked document on intellectual property (IP) standards.

"Bush was better than Obama on this," said Judit Rius, U.S. manager of Doctors Without Borders Access to Medicines Campaign, referring to the medication rules. "It's pathetic, but it is what it is. The world's upside-down."

Jonesboro is a liberal hell hole. If your messiah can't win Jonesboro, he can't win at all, not without as much Democrat voter fraud this time as there was in 2008, probably will need even more.

I heard predictions of 6.00 by Memorial Day! Oops. It's dangerous to predict things like that because if they don't come true, you lose.

Considering the national average was 4.08 during George Bush's Summer of 2008, yes, it's low.
