Gas prices have surged in recent weeks creating fresh openings for GOP attacks against President Obama. Gas prices have surged in recent weeks and analysts predict theyll keep rising, creating fresh openings for GOP attacks against President Obama that had waned when prices dropped sharply.
The nationwide average for regular gasoline is $3.60-per-gallon, a 24-cent rise over the past four weeks, according to AAA. Prices are well below the peak of nearly $4 in early April, a run-up that fueled constant GOP criticism of White House energy policies and threw Obama on the defensive.

Under Mugabe, they have been above $3 for 38 straight months.
Like millions of us, I’m sure obama is “haunted” every time he and Moochelle tank up the family van
Oh, wait ....
Obamagas is high, and full of corn, but it his diesel that keeps jumping up and up and up. Not only will there be no corn products to ship, there will be no trucks on the road to ship them. If Obama can’t figure out how to bring oil prices down, he is too dumb to understand energy beyond the popping of fart bubbles in his head.
When a Republican is president, the headline is the public being victims of the president and of big oil.
When a Democrat is president, the headline is the president being a victim of high gas prices and of Republican attacks.
You are making the assumption that his goal is to help America.
As Ayn Rand would say, "Check your premises"...
Next month the unemployment will slightly rise, less people will be hired. Why? Impact of high gas prices. If they continue to rise over the next few months unemployment and hiring will get worse. Just follow the trends I predicted earlier in the year. Rising gas price kill the economy, just what Obama wants to destroy our country. Gallop must have found out my prediction and followed it. Obama will carry between eight and twelve states come November, 2012 and will lose re-election in a landslide defeat, taking many Democrats down with him.
Have you all noticed how many Democrats up for election this cycle are not going anywhere near Obama & Biden. Both Obama & Biden are the kiss of political death for any Democrat!!! He (Obama) is always alone at the podium with small crowds in attendance at his anti-American rantings!!!
3.99 9/10 in Michigan yesterday (reg unleaded 87).
I was worried it would reach $4.00.
BUT BUT, how can this be? He is NOT running on his record.
At least it’s not above $4.00/gal like under Bush.
Gas was more expensive under Bush.
Uh, yeah it is.
I’ve never been happier to pay 4 bucks/gallon. If it helps get rid of Obama, let it go to $10 a gallon. At least, we know it’ll be temporary when we get an administration that will allow us to develop our own resources.
From Post # 1 above: Gas prices were above $3 for exactly 13 months out of 96 months, from 2001 - 2008 under Bush. The Kenyan inherited $1.79 gas from Bush. Under Obama they have been above $3 for 38 straight months.
