Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed the Obama administrations handling of rapidly escalating gas prices, saying that he believes the presidents ultimate goal may be to use $9 a gallon gas to revamp the economy along European lines
This president and his secretary of anti-energy, Dr. Chu, have as a goal getting us to pay European-level prices of $8 or $9. Dr. Chu was clear about that before he became secretary. He wants us to get to be a European-level price structure of $8 or $9 a gallon, Gingrich told This Week host George Stephanopoulos.
He said this week, in testifying in the House, he has no intention of trying to lower the price of oil or the price of gasoline," Gingrich added. "The American people on the other hand would much rather pay $2.50 and be independent of Saudi Arabia than be where we are today.

Actually its $10 a gallon, that is his goal..why? Simple, so that everyone will be forced to buy that idiotic Volt and other electric cars..that’s the master plan, raise gas prices, everyone has to buy an electric car..the progressive utopian society that they have wanted for years
how can it be secret when his Energy Secretary spits it out every chance he gets?
Newt should stick to this attack, as Americans by and large, don’t know Obama’s goal, and why he hired Chu. The word HAS to get out.
When did this become a secret??
It’s Obama’s 9-9-9 plan. $9.99 gas.
Please God get this foreign maggot saboteur scum 0bama OUT of office.. Whatever it takes. Please hurry.
This is also part of shifting us to public transportation and crowding us into little bird cage apartments in urban areas...all to further reduce our environmental “footprint.” That’s where liberals live, right, so why shouldn’t it be good enough for the rest of us?
Newt’s been using the “never again bow to a Saudi king” line in every single appearance he does on this. He seemed to stop using the 9-9-9 line this weekend though. I think he should keep using that one.
As FReeper 2ndDivisionVet suggested, a grassroots movement can take fire using the image shown here.
I have made copies of that graph, attached dual-sided tape to the rear, and placed it on self-serve pumps at gas stations and convenience stores throughout Tarrant County, Texas. It's not vandalizing private property. Instead it serves as a nudge to those filling up their tanks, making it clear that the policies of Obama are 100% responsible for the pain at the pump.
Obama’s goal is more like no gas and more volt’s that nobody wants.
Production on hold for the volt,the electric Edsel.
it’d be nice to have an unemployment graph as well.
The only people who think it is a secret are ignorant people who believe the MSM and the Democrats. The MSM has covered up this item in Obama’s agenda and Democrats refuse to speak of it publicly.
That’s defnitely Obama’s plan. One of our problems is that we are blaming these problems on his ineptitude, and while he may personally be inept, the people around him are very vicious, very focused on the long term goal, and he is doing exactly what they tell him to do.
The average per capita use of gasoline is 450 gallons per individual in the USA. Please not this not per household but per individual, The average household in the USA is 2.6 persons thus the average use is 1170 gallons of gasoline per household. If we add 5 dollars of tax to each gallon it will amount to a tax of 5850 dollars on each household. This is 675 billion dollars for the government to spend. However, there is more taxes that you will not see at the pump. All the modes of transportation will be hit with this tax. Thus anything requiring petroleum to make or move it will go up in price.
These punitive prices would lower consummation perhaps by half but it would still be a huge tax burden on the public and an absolute certainty of economic decline of the USA. You think the recession is bad, just wait for the depression this would cause.
Wrong, Obama’s Secret Goal is not $9 Gas. The real goal is the introduction of a Dictatorship with himself as President for Life.
Bambi does want to be dictator for life...and he is already changing our entire country so he can achieve this.
The only person who seems to realize this is Gingrich. Santorum is going on with his sweater vest and his preachy “community” big-government goals, and Romney is going on with his evil-eyed Mormon missionary sons and his nasty top-dog big-government goals.
I lived through the Carter years, when we had to calculate if we had enough money to buy gas to go to church after the commutes. I don’t want to do this again.
Hardly a secret, given his energy sec admitted it.
