No, it can't be. He's still on a learning curve and trying to fix that inherited mess stuff. Give it about 3-4 years then you can blame him. Until then it's Bushes fault.

Everyone who refuses to try to limit their oil consumption by conserving the energy they consume is responsible for rising oil prices.

You people make me sick!

We had 8 years of Bush.
7.5 years of prosperity, job growth, unemployement at 4-5%.

And after 6 years of claiming there was a recession, the libs finally got one the last part of Bush's presidency.

And all you want to do is blame Obama.

Don't you know he's the messiah, the savior, the One, etc. Are you blind.

You need to be careful when criticizing him since the libs may make it against the law to do so.

Give him a chance.
By opposing health care you show you're a racist.
By opposing amnesty for those poor people coming across the border for a better life and cheap drugs, you show you're a racist.

By listening to any right wing news outlet you show you're a racist.

And I know what you're planning. When Robert (the sheet) Byrd assumes room temperature, I know you neo-cons are going to try to buy up his KKK sheet and other memorabilia of his KKK days. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

It's appalling that you hate children, want old people to eat dog food, want the homeless to continue to live on the streets. Just shameful.

Just shameful.

The lying hypocrite can't help himself. All he knows is lies.

There is not a shred of truth in his whole post. Nothing but hyperbole and hysteria.

Lying's a sin you know. Repent and the lord will forgive you.

They are talking about gasoline being a problem & the above forget that at $3/gal it is 25% lower than it reached under Bush.

We should learn one thing. The recession lowered the demand. The price went down.

We have the technology today to significantly reduce our oil use.

We don't need to burn oil to heat our homes.

We have high mpg autos. We can remove thousands of trucks off the road with more rail use.

I know you're trying to be sarcastic here. But you hit the nail on the head. Glad to know you do understand where your side is coming from, you just refuse to be honest about it. Thanks for being honest now. Jesus and Jerry F. are smiling, I'm sure.

I bet if Toyota offered a free gas for a year, or gas at $2.00 a gallon for a year, they'd clear their sales lots in a week!

Here's some breaking news:

We have reached peak oil. There is no more new supply The US is at the mercy of foreign oil. The only solution is to get off oil and develop green technologies.

You can't drive an SUV, keep your lights on all night, then bi/tch about the price of oil. Actions have consequences.

Breaking news from Marcus Rahut:
Gas prices are higher than they were last year!

Can anyone name a year when that WASN'T true? Gas has been going up every year my whole life.

The major gas corporations always raise gas prices during holidays when people travel, and during the summer when people take vacations. The American public allow this to happen. Wake Up People!!!! Stay home and stop driving for a week. Then see how far the price of gas drops...It's a game TPTB play with us. Do some research online and WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

"under my vision of Cap and Trade energy prices will necessarily skyrocket." Barrack Obama. He may not be causing it but he ain't going to do anything to stop it. It plays right into his game plan of making Americans completely dependent on his government for their daily lives.

''''gas at $7 a gallon'''

http://www.infowars.com/7-a-gallon-gas-needed...

To meet the Obama administration’s targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions, some researchers say, Americans may have to experience a sobering reality: gas at $7 a gallon. To reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the transportation sector 14 percent from 2005 levels by 2020, the cost of driving must simply increase, according to a forthcoming report by researchers at Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. The 14 percent target was set in the Environmental Protection Agency’s budget for fiscal 2010.”

$3.36/gal tax
The economy-wide CO2 tax, plus a strong gasoline and diesel tax.($0.50/gal in 2010 and increasing 10% per year, relative to the previous year and in real terms, resulting in a $3.36/gal tax in 2030.)

Doesn't the price of gas also go up when the producers swap blends (i.e. from summer blend to winter blend, vice versa)? Because it's cold the past few days, we might think it's a little early, but they should be making that seasonal switch pretty soon.
