Obama is a gas jerk-off.
Why, because you drive a 98 Yukon and can't afford but a 1/4 tank ?
Whose fault is that? You're the jerk-off that can't afford a modern gas sipper.

I cannot stand this Obama crook, but this latest push by the Republican is completely offensive in the assumption of voter stupidity!
Gas prices are rising because rising prosperity in China, India, Brazil, and dozens of other countries means they are now competing with the US and Europe for the limited supply of global oil. That, as well as to a smaller extent fluctuations in the dollar and price speculators are the real cause of rising gas prices, and it was not caused by Obama, Bush, or even the recession. If anything, the recession helped keep gas prices lower by reducing demand.
By pushing this bogus issue, Republicans are risking being completely discredited on the real issues, and risking our ability to take back the White House and Congress. The voters will not react kindly to being lied to and treated like idiots, and we may pay dearly if they take out their anger on us by re-electing Obama in the fall.
Except Brazil, who will be instrumental in lowering the price of oil worldwide, provided they start supplying faster than demand is growing.(and they refused to join OPEC)
It's supply and demand on a global scale, it's a simple concept. We could drill all the oil out of the USA, and it would not change the price of oil.(OPEC, which would be an illegal cartel in the USA, affects oil prices more than anything by controlling supply.)
Corporations are people, they're just not U.S. American people, and they sell their product/oil on the global market. The USA is a net exporter of gasoline, which means we have plenty of supply for the USA.
People that are blaming Obama for the price of gas are equally as stupid as those that blamed Bush. If there is price fixing by the corporations going on to affect the outcome of the election that would be a crime. I don't want to believe that there is a conspiracy, but I will tell you that the fluctuation in gas prices in 2007 is suspect.
