Yes, the price of gasoline reached historic levels, rising above $4/gallon during Bush’s second term, but that wasn’t due to a lack of trying to increase domestic supply. U.S. domestic supply is but one factor in the global price of oil, and thus gas prices. But when a president purposefully chooses to decrease our domestic supply by 13%, with hopes of driving that supply even lower, and objects to U.S.-Canadian pipelines and new forms of exploration, discovery and friendly importation, the price consequences are real, and should be scrutinized.

During the first twenty-six months of President Bush’s first term in office, the price of gasoline increased by 7%. At the end of his second term, the price had decreased by 9% from the time he took office (adjusted for inflation). During the first twenty-six months of Obama’s term in office, the price of gasoline has spiked over 67% with no relief in site.

When Bush came into office gas was $1.59. When he left it was $1.83 Not exactly a decrease. It hit a high of $4.39 which was a 176% increase from when he entered office. Most people agree that the rise in gas prices was due to speculation and tension in the middle east primarily the Iraq war. Now the price is being driven by speculation and tension in the middle east, primarily Iran. The difference is the problems in Iraq were created by Bush when he attacked that country. Today the problems in Iran are being caused by the nuts running that place.

Obama:'Do Not Tell Me We're Not Drilling. We're Drilling All Over This Country'... WELL I MEAN THE PRIVATE LAND, I AM BLOCKING DRILLING ON FEDERAL LAND AND AM STILL IN CONTEMPT FOR BLOCKING DRILLING IN THE GULF........maybe BP will come through with another million for my retirement in November.

FLASH: THIS JUST IN.......Obama knows the Supreme Court has already ruled that requiring a photo ID is perfectly legal. He knows his challenge to Texas will be found unconstitutional. His only hopes to keep the PHOTO ID from becoming actual law in Texas and South Carolina until after the election........which shows Voter Fraud and ACORN are still very much a part of the Liberal game plan. They never win on a level playing field.

39 shallow-water permits for new wells have been issued since June 8, 2010,
six deepwater well permits issued since Oct. 12, 2010. Those are not private properties.
