April 25, 2008-Obama Promises to LOWER Gas Prices, If Elected! (Price On Sign $3.55 P/Gal)
YouTube ^ | 4-25-11 | TCRLAF

Posted on 04/25/2011 6:07:33 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Let us take a trip in to the way-back machine, through the fires of the Mainstream Media Memory Hole.

On this very date in 2008, when gas prices were 10% LOWER than they are today, Obama visited Indianapolis, and gave a speech PROMISING to lower gas prices, if Elected, and blaming Bush and Cheney for Americans paying $3.55 a gallon, the price on the sign behind him, for it.

Gas prices are running 10% HIGHER now, than they were in 2008.

WHICH OBAMA LIE ARE WE TO BELIEVE?

The one in which he said “Under my plan energy prices must rise.”

Or the one that said in 2008:

“High energy prices are the fault of Bush and Cheney”????

Obama’s very own Chicago now has the highest gas prices in the nation.

“CHICAGO (CBS) — The price for a gallon of gasoline in Chicago is now the highest in the nation.

According to the Lundberg survey, the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline in Chicago now stands at $4.27–a 12 cent increase in the past two weeks. And that’s just the average. Several stations in Chicago were selling gasoline for between $4.60 and $4.70 a gallon,...”

HOPEY-CHANGEY!!!

Democrats lie; they all lie. Anyone who forgets this simple truth deserves the disappointment that comes with believing that they actually care about the country, the Constitution or the economy.

I’m surprised Google hasn’t deleted these clips. They should come in handy for GOP ad makers in 2012.

Obama vows to shut down Coal.

All of his lies on coal =FAILED. So Obama recently said coal causes asthma.

He’s realizing his dreams.

He says in one sentence that making profit is fine for an oil company, but in the next sentence he wants a “windfall profits” tax when they’re already paying tens of billions of dollars in taxes. Go figure.

He is making re-election impossible for himself. Gas prices alone as the sole issue could elect Bozo the clown if he had a realistic energy policy at this point. My bet is that “O” doesn’t change a thing either, although he will lie even more to cover up what he is doing.

Thanks, al_c!

What's the theory behind the precipitous drop in prices in late 2008? And what was the supposed cause of the spike conveniently during the spring and summer before the election.

I don't tend towards conspiracies, but I've often wondered if gas prices were rigged to get Obama in office, just as I wonder if the financial crisis and the money market crash wasn't a Soros inspired disaster to elect the socialist messiah...

Note the massive drop under Bush is when he announced he was lifting the moratorium and the rise is exactly when Obama took office and has been going up steadily since.

It's Obama’s policies driving the prices higher.

Your memory is correct. It went to a low of $1.37 here in east TN. It is now on the brink of tripling that price.

...when he said “consumers”, you thought he meant American consumers.

I can see where you stupid, ignorant conservatives would be confused.

Now pay your taxes - we have an oil crisis.
