Hey, where did you get that gas price chart? ABC radio news is reporting gas prices this morning, but reporter threw in, “Prices we haven’t seen since 2008”. Now I don’t remember too well, but I KNOW it was nowhere near $3.00/gallon!

Never mind, apparently it was pretty bad. Man, I’m getting old.

Compare that information to the chart below.
To really understand fuel prices,you have to take a look at which party had control of the House and the Senate.
The Democrats took control of both the House and the Senate in 2006.

Read what some people said that caused the drop in Oil Prices in Oct 2008 and again on Dec 23, 2008.
No one wanted to SAY that oil prices dropped because the House passes bill allowing offshore drilling, Sep 17, 2008, but that had a lot to do with it.
