Posted on 02/22/2012 5:08:50 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
President Barack Obama will deliver a speech on energy and rising gas prices Thursday at the University of Miami, FOX News Channel reported.
White House officials told FOX the president will lay out an "all of the above" approach to the nation's energy security that he has previously outlined and will tout the fact that domestic oil production has risen on his watch while imports have decreased.
Gas prices have continued to climb in recent months, surpassing $4 per gallon in some areas.

This ought to be good..
Except when vacationing or golfing, Obama only travels to “swing” states.
I wonder how he’s going to sell “The enviromental lobby will go berserk against me if I drill for oil and gas. For that reason we will continue our foreign oil dependence as long as I am President, resulting high gas prices notwithstanding” to the public?
Best laugh of my day!
Your post makes complete sense. Therefore we already know the truth will once more be a casualty in the world according to liberals.
Save gas? OK, Barry, try this:
Get rid of the ethanol and get rid of the crappy winter blend. That should be good for an across the board 10% improvement.
In times like these....Americans will have to cut back for the greater good.
In times like these...Americans will have to pay a greater energy tax to provide gas for the less fortunate.
In times like these...it is prudent that I take over the oil companies for the benefit of all.
They will leave the rebuttal in the hands of Little Miss Mary Katharine Ham who, despite Herculean efforts, will be over-talked and drowned out by Bill O'Rudely and Alan Colmes.
And that will be that.
Anybody want to take a guess at who he will blame. Republicans? The Oil Industry? George W. Bush? The Tea Party? The wealthy 1%? All of the Above?
Dump more money into Solyndra!
Pray for America
Don’t bet on it.
He is going to cut the federal gas tax in half to buy votes..
He’ll probably issue an executive order mandating the oil companies offer free gas to those making under $250,000/yr.
What The 0’s more likely to do is announce a brand-new 90% tax on income from those greedy, nasty oil leases.
Steal more money, just about shut down the Bakken overnight and put another 20,000 people out of work.
I really, really wish I could do an /sarc here........
I smell desperation. Will he suspend the 44c per gallon federal tax, or cut it back substantially?
We already know he’s unafraid to cut revenues (payroll tax) because he knows he can print money.
Perfect slight-of-hand maneuver to buy votes now, delay the pain to later.
You beat me to it. I think so too.
