We have not won yet and there still plenty of work to do if we want to make Obama a one term President.
This election going to be close and is going to be determined by who does go to the pols and votes.

In the end I don't think it will be as close as people think. It seems Obama is being favored in the swing states. Obama will have four more years.

If so, what do you think we will be paying for gas in 2016?
Who knows? That's determined on the world market.
Since gas averaged 4.00 a gallon under George Bush in 2008 and it's about 3.50 now I would suspect it will be around 4 something a gallon by 2016, why?

Gas prices averaged about $2.40 per gallon during the GW years, not $4. That includes the short term spike of up to $4.40 (summer, 2008)

Under Obama, we've averaged about $3.50 -$3.75, up 50% overall

Prices have risen not because of a lack of resources, but deliberate restrictions on recovery, transportation, and refining by our own government.

Drilling rigs cost anywhere from a couple million dollars to over a Billion dollars. Energy harvesters plan several their bores years in advance. Besides placing large tracts off-limits, the administration has restricted oil leases so that bores must be made within months of letting leases. If bores aren't made in the allotted time, the administration retracts the leases. Why would any company, that plans years in advance, agree to revamp their schedules or invest in expensive equipment that may not be utilized next year?

The uncertainty makes the political environment too risky to do business here, at this time.

Supply and demand. Supply is down, relative to demand, therefore, prices rise.

Then I will vote for the guy that will expand coal plants and natural gas and maybe even a few new refineries and looking for more oil on our territory and things like that. You can pay the higher price if you want. In fact lets split America up into a couple of nations.

It was a trick question. It won't matter what the price of gas is if you don't have a job.
I've worked since I was 16. Now 55. There's jobs. Maybe not the one you want but something to get you through until you find something better. Get to work folks! No, the midnight shift at 7-11 is not fun but it's a job.

North Dakota has an oil boom! Oil pouring out like water. How much is a gallon of gasoline there? Surprising to know it's above average.

From private land. That would mean that energy is produced in spite of obama.
How many refineries are there in North Dakota? Probably none since there has not been a refinery build in the US in 30 years. Thanks EPA. ND oil has to be transported to a refinery then returned as fuel. No wonder it costs more.
Say FU to OPEC.
If they thought America would even cut 10% of foreign dependance the price would go down dramatically.
Demand is a powerful tool when a nation consumes one third of the worlds supply every year.

Gallup is always an outlier LOL.

Republiscums are America-hating traitors and Al Qaeda sympathizers.

People don't point out enough the Romney debating President on foreign affairs is like the President debating Romney on downsizing companies

Republicans. Even better at sabotaging the economy when they're in the White House.

KNOW THIS: Mitt is promising $1 trillion in Bush tax breaks for the rich and trillions more he says will magically pay for themselves.

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to vote Republican.

The elecoral map is changing dailey, and your numbers remain the same. RCP has Romney with 26, and Obiewan with 201. There is no clear winner, and won't be until the 5th
