Skip to comments.Trump: Gasoline to Hit $7 a Gallon This Year
Posted on 02/22/2012 2:07:50 PM PST by robowombat
Gasoline prices could soar as high as $7 a gallon this summer thanks to supply threats stemming from Middle East unrest as well as OPEC policy, says real estate mogul Donald Trump.
Iran has already cut off supply to France and to the U.K. to protest sanctions from the west, who accuse Tehran of developing a nuclear weapons program.
U.S. military officials have said they feel they can ration with Iran, although fears are growing that Israel may consider a unilateral strike on Iran anyway, which is sending crude oil skyrocketing.

If $7.00 gas leads to Obama’s ouster, it will be worth it.
May be the price we have to pay to get rid of Obama. And money well spent.
If that’s what it takes to finally be rid of Comrade Zero, then bring it on.
Loving these comments. It’s hard to get unanimity on FR these days.
Yeah, so let’s talk about Satan, and what made this country great, as the leading GOP candidate is now doing. But heck, it’s a good thing he’s not a manager and not a visionary!
I could be wrong on this, but it just doesn’t look like that “hope & change” thingy is working out all that great.
If prices stay above $4/gallon thru the summer it will make it much harder for him to win. Anything above $5 will make it impossible for him to win.
As the economy comes to a screeching halt. Food, housing is all that will be spent on. This summer will see ‘stay-cations’ ....only thing you’ll see on the road are trucks, buses and taxi’s (maybe). America will park their cars.
Something like this has the potential to get real ugly real fast. But take heart Obama will just blame Boooooosh and all will be well.
You seem to be forgetting about the huge block of dead people that will vote for the Won.
Look at Drudge - Already $6 in places in Florida... Hello 38 electoral votes
Calm down, Saint Ricky will come up with something, just give him time. First he has to review Newt’s speeches on the subject.
Price of gas a problem, Iran, our economy, Israel’s safety, Jobs, our borders, our debt, foreign relations, the UN, our judiciary, illegal-immigration, legal immigration (muslims), energy, our own regulatory agencies, these are only part of our problems. I think we can find someone better equipped to put us on the Right path than Donald Trump. How can anyone look at what we’re faced with and not realize that this not a game or popularity contest. WE NEED NEWT GINGRICH.
That's just around WDW\Orlando. Gas is always in the WTF range around there. The rest of the state averages $3.27.
The economy will tank. 0 will blame others. The LSM will parrot. And the sheeple shall vote as they are told.
From your lips to God;S ear.
High energy price are also very useful to tyrants who want to limit mobility of the slaves. And that is helpful when the round-up of dissidents begins: They’ll be a hell of a lot easier to find. They’ll probably be home.
America may park it’s cars,but we farmers can’t park our tractors.Looks like another difficult year here on the farm.
