Oh I am sure it was just a coincidence. I don't think anything that has happened in the past 4 years has been a
coincidence it is all by design IMO. I was wondering how Obama would get past the high gas prices unscathed they are already blaming higher prices on the fire 2 weeks ago. Thew news doesn't mention that before the fire gas in Cal was almost $4.00 a gallon ($3.94)

Gas prices will go up even more. They’re bound to go up anyway, with oil prices projected to go way up this fall and spring. Then there are Syria and Iran.
