Why should Obama & Mooch care? They're flying around on vacations and we are paying the gas bill for them.

Don't worry about real folks with jobs that have gas money eating into their budgets.

The Obama's don't know the meaning of work or paying for things on their own!! They are immune from the chaos he causes in this country...& no one has the backbone to step up to stop him!

Terrible article. It simply takes a trip to the gas station to know that prices up. How about, god forbid, someone take the time to examine why and put that on paper. We can even start with a question! “Why are gas prices historically high under Obama?”

If anyone is interested in why, here are a few links:

Interesting to think that the East Coast is about to lose a majority of its refining ability.

Maybe the price is up, but it's not Obama's fault. No way. He's for the little guy and wants more energy, and cleaner energy. He even said so in his SOTU speech and he even has Energy Czars and everything!

It's George Bush's fault, or Halliburton's, or the greedy oil companies, or the gouging suppliers, or the oil sheiks, or the GOP Congress which refuses to pass modern energy legislation and cap and trade, or the gas guzzlers Americans are allowed to own, or... (fill in the blank)

But Obama's fault? No way!!

Looks to me like it’s time for “gas stamps”

There must be agood reason for the increase.

After all - Obama is the smartest man to ever occupy the office of the President.

Its mostly inflation.

On the dates mentioned, on January 19, 2009 an ounce of gold bought 453 gallons of gas. On Feb 11 2013 an ounce of gold bought 457 gallons of gas. If anything, then, gas is within 1% of being the same price in terms of gold as it was four years ago.

Go price eggs.

I don’t recall the GOP making much of a fuss about the democrats causing fuel to double in cost. This should have been hammered into the voters brains. Assuming the media would allow it of course.

It will be up another 96 cents before the American Caligula is gone.

The Obamas think nothing of gas prices. They just get into the car or jet and naught a thought.
