OBAMA'S GAS PRICE HIKE MIRRORS APPROVAL AND KILLS REELECTION
The best campaign ad for not reelecting Barack Obama does not come from any of the Republican candidates running for President. It does not come from a Conservative or Republican Political Action Committee nor from the Republican National Committee. If on wants to see the best campaign ad against Obama's reelection no one need look any further than the next time you pull up to a gas pump and feel the irritation associated with the price of every gallon of gas that goes into your vehicle and the dollars flowing out of your wallet with each drop of gas.
When Obama took office the average price of a gallon of gas was $1.79 according to Gas Buddy.com. As of this posting the average per gallon cost in $3.51 with prices expected to top $4.00 before May and possibly $4.50 by mid Summer. Part of the price hike is the normal reduction in refining this time of year due to refineries being forced to shut down because of government regulated blend changes from the Winter months to the Spring and Summer months.
But even taking this into effect last year at this same time the average price was $2.79 with the change to the Summer blends taking prices only slightly above $3.00. At least 30 to 40 cents per gallon can be directly attributed to the Gulf of Mexico drilling moratorium ordered personally by Barack Obama as an over reaction to the BP oil spill which shut down drilling and caused the massive drilling ships to move elsewhere working for other countries in order to continue their job.
As a result even with some of the moratorium lifted because of the anger by those living in the Gulf States who lost tens of thousands of jobs the loss of the drilling ships to other sights equates to about a 30% drop in domestic oil supplies which have been made up for by buying from foreign sources. Additionally oil deposits in this Nation in just the Dakotas alone more than double the amount of oil in the ENTIRE Middle East combined. The United States should be an oil EXPORTER with our citizens paying about 50 cents a gallon like the Venezuelans who supply all of their own oil and sell the rest on World Markets.
But thanks to the idiot in chief who stated before he was elected that he wanted to see our pump prices slowly rise so that we would be more in line with what the rest of the World was paying. By his own interference in Domestic oil production, the denial of the Keystone Pipeline and his war on, "big oil," Obama has single handily succeeded in doing what he sat out to do and every American is paying the price for his idiocy through higher pump prices and higher consumer goods because of the greater cost of transportation of those goods.
So for those who still support this joker take a look at the gas pump next time you put $20 dollars in the tank since many no longer can afford to fill up and ask yourself do I want him around for another four years so I will be forced to pay $6.00or more at the pump? Gas has risen almost 90% under Obama with no end in sight and this alone is enough to get this enemy of Americans out of office.
