When Obama first took office in January 2009, the unemployment rate was 7.8 percent. Today the unemployment rate is once again at 7.8 percent.

Gas price under bush went to $4.21 a gallon and was over $3.00 a gallon most of his last term in office.
The only reason gas was at $1.85 when President Obama took office is because of the economic crash which greatly reduced demand and the crash effected all countries not just the US.
Gas prices rise with demand and as the economy has improved it is completely normal for gas prices to increase as more businesses use fuel for deliveries, more trucks on the road, more people traveling, and more people driving to work.
So our rising gas price is actually an indicator that the economy is recovering.
We also see a spike when the Libya UN action happened and now with Iran and Israel in a standoff an Syria effecting the region we are seeing another spike as speculators are betting on a war.
Anyone that tries to blame president Obama for higher gas prices is a fool and drilling more oil would not lower the price because we do not have a shortage and oil drilling has quadrupled in the last 4 years and the US is now a net exporter of oil.
So ignore the talking heads and fear monger Conservatives and complain all you want about higher gas prices but don't blame President Obama!
Way #1 the President of the U.S. influences gas prices at the pump:

Strategic Oil Reserve

In 1991 oil release in the middle of the first Gulf War dropped prices at the pump by 33.4 percent, and said a 2000 release by President Clinton lowered prices by 18.7 percent. President George W. Bush's 2005 move to stop filling the reserve dropped prices 9.1 percent.

Oh, and W's E.O. to open up off-shore drilling in July-2008 is the prime reason gas prices dropped to $1.86 - just the threat caused the markets to react.

So...on the one hand you say that the market dictates pricing...supply and demand...but on the other you say that having more oil on hand (increase in drilling) would not lower prices.

Which is it?

First you are complaining about 20 round clips, then 30, now it is up to 50. What's the matter? Do you feel your previous arguments are too weak? Suppose you have a pack of wolves killing your livestock, How many rounds would you want to be able to fire if you find and encounter them? Just saying....
A pack of wolves ???? Where do you live ? I can get by pretty well with a single shot rifle, since I usually hit what I'm aiming at...
I see no reason for 20 round clips or 30 round clips or 50 round clips. Have I made my position clear enough for you now ? I would hate to be responsible for making you more confused than you already are.

NO! it was not---just like a dem/lib to lie in order to protect Obama. Yes we have increased the oil drilling in Private lands, Not gov. lands. Obama shut every thing down so he could get money to his cronies in the green manufacturing plants. Most all (90%) went bankrupt and did the taxpayer get any money back NOOOOOOOOOO.. He even stopped the pipe line from canada to the gulf and that my friend would have brought several thousand jobs on line almost at once. Compare that to his "SHOVEL READY" projects that he himself stated they were not as shovel ready and he thought they were.
The best thing you as a dem/lib can do is go check out the actually figures and not from dem/lib organizations.

SO you are saying that, because you live in an area without these dangers, the laws should only suit your environment. Not others that do exist in this country.

What happened at the REAL inauguration:

America, you have been sentenced to an additional 1461 days of Obama.

If everything goes as planned, unemployment, which is presently 7.8% will rise to 10%, and then shortly before the 2016 election will go back down to 7.8%, which will officially become the new “full employment” figure.

The number of people who have left the workforce entirely, which stands now at 8M, will rise to 16M, and they will be given “minority” status. Companies will be fined for not employing them, and the government will offer all types of incentives.

The number of people on disability, which has ballooned during the first term, will continue to balloon due to an easing of eligibility requirements.

The number of people on food stamps, which rose to nearly 42 million, will rise another 42 million. Obama will issue an executive order forcing restaurants to provide free meals to food stamp recipients – tips included.

The prices of gas, currently around $3.25, will rise to $6.50 per gallon. Obama will order all vehicles over the age of 20 years to be crushed.

Obama will further invest in alternative energy, until they can get it right. As of this juncture, according to the CBO - http://www.cbo.gov/publication/43576 estimates that federal policies to promote the manufacture and purchase of electric vehicles, some of which also support other types of fuel-efficient vehicles, will have a total budgetary cost of about $7.5 billion through 2019, despite the fact that the public has rejected these vehicles. Obama will issue an executive order forcing people to purchase these vehicles, if they are made in the US.

Taxes will increase for all Americans.

Obama, late in his last term will issue an order to confiscate all firearms.

Finally, shortly before the 2016 election, he will declare martial law, suspend the constitution and bill of rights, and declare himself Ruler for Life.

The press will support this measure.
