However, notice how they always say "when Zero took office, gas was..."?
That's because gasoline prices crashed in 2008 along with the stock market. When Zero was running for office, we had $4/gal gas when oil hit $140/bbl, and Zero was blaming Bush and his 'oil baron cronies.'
It is unrealistic to expect to return to $2/gal, unless you also expect to return to Dow 8500.
Of course. Thats the simple answer and obvious one. The quickest way to cheapen the gas would be to remove the Federal tax on it. But if ya really want to drop the price of oil, bring down the Dow to circa 6500.
As I said before, the price for gas began falling before the crash as I remember...and I believe ti would have continued to do so with or without the crash.
The inancial crisis was brought on by the housing crisis which, IMHO, the dems engineered, riding it into the ground and blaming Bush for it.
The video, “Burning Down the House,” is a good one on this subject.
