Any of you know what our #1 export is right now? GASOLINE.
Why?? Natural Gas. Fracking and drilling for Gas is really cheap to do. The natural gas is used to run refineries and supplies the heat necessary to crack crude into gass and other products. but whay would our precious oil companies load OUR gasoline onto a tanker and ship it offshore??
Because it it more profitable to sell it elsewhere than it is to sell it here.
Free market stuff, ya like talking about it, but no Republican actually understands it. The fuel market is hardly a free market. Prices from 20 different oil companies stay within $0.04 of eachother, and rise the same amount at the same time yearound. they know full well if the price of gas jumped $5 in one day, the market would bear it. They play a little, making sure we stay good and scared of the middle east. They keep the news organizations informed on rises in the price of oil,(never report on the price falling though). The oil companies have thousands of people working to keep the prices artificially high so they can make money. Lobbyists, publicists, salesmen, lawyers, physichiotrists, mercinaries, accountants. we don't stand a chance to keep gas affordable no matter who is in the white house. The oil companies own many of our beloved politicians, regardless of the D or R designation.

BBuy you guys just get all pissed off at Obama. That's what the corporate masters want. All the oil companies want to do is make money plain nad simple. The only people they can make money off of is us.
Just bend over and take it. As long as you can blame it on the president, it won't hurt that bad.

Since our tax dollars were taken from us to prop up two failing auto companies Check Six and the rest of us tax payers can say what ever we like about the losers. Especially since they can give themselves bonuses before we the tax payers have even been fully paid back for the loan.
Volts are for Dolts and GM and Chrysler products are made by losers for losers.

318 million people in the U S, 48% of them on the government dole, one way or another. That makes my share of the Volt quite expensive. That is just one reason not to reelect the President, and it is a good reason to dump some Democrats in the House, and Senate.

GM is still on the hook to the taxpayers for $38 BILLION. Chrysler was a $2.3 billion loss to taxpayers.

An eight of a penny per taxpayer comes out to roughly $400 thousand.

I guess math isn't your strong suit.

My name is Barry Obama, and my answer to you America, to save money at the gas pump is to trade in your car and buy a new $50,000 one. True I know many of you can barely afford your rent or mortgage. Or health insurance. But just think of all the money you will save buying gas. It will cover that $600 month car payment.

Obama is off his f'ing rocker. People can't afford to live and he expects them to buy a 30,40,50 thousand dollar car because of the high cost of gas. The man is truly clueless.

I guess if he can't get people to buy new cars, he will spend trillions in "algae". We all saw how well spent our money was with Solyndra.
