Skip to comments.McConnell: Obama Wants Higher Gas Prices (Obama has said he wants higher gas prices)
Posted on 03/08/2012 4:21:36 AM PST by tobyhill
Speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday, Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., criticized the White Houses energy policy, claiming President Obama wants higher gas prices.
Across the country the average cost for a gallon of gas is $3.76 and it went up for 27 consecutive days. The Oil Price Information Service projects the nationwide average could peak at $4.25 per gallon in late April.
McConnell says the administration hasnt pursued an energy strategy to address the increase, adding it failed to support the Keystone XL pipeline project.
In fact, when it comes to the rising cost of gas at the pump, its my view that the administrations policies are actually designed on purpose to bring about higher gas prices, a view that shouldnt be the least bit controversial given the fact that the presidents own energy secretary has suggested on a couple of occasions now that his goal isnt to drive gas prices down, he says.

Prepare to be newly demonized Mitch. Btw good going Mitch!
I fail to understand.
Barry doesn’t just WANT higher prices.
Our Kenyan pResident PROMISED US HE WOULD GIVE US HIGHER PRICES.
What part of “necessarily skyrocket” didn’t you unnerstand??
The demand will decrease well beyond any predictions.
Finally, Finally FINALLY!!!!!!
Where have you been Mitch? Where are the rest of the Republicans.
We have been watching prices rise for a while now, son:What took you so long to speak up.
It should never be forgotten that a Marxist revolution is only possible when the people are greatly disaffected.
Obama is an ignorant and inept clod; however, he has AT LEAST read Trotsky, Engels, and the works of Karl Marx.
Diesel fuel is currently over $4 a gallon in most places across the USA. Everything you buy is going to “necessarily sky rocket”. All the products we buy depends on the big rigs delivering them to the stores, including the fuel you use to fill up your vehicle.
That is only half of it, diesel is used for all production also, which directly raises costs immediately.
Hey Mitch, tell us something we DON’T KNOW.
Better yet, DO something about it!
keep ‘em coming! - bump the thread - keep these damning Obama words in front of everybody
