Obama: Gas prices 'make things harder' By: Jennifer Epstein March 17, 2012 07:02 AM EDT
With the price of gas averaging $3.83 per gallon for regular 30 cents more than a month ago President Barack Obama said he feels Americans pain at the pump but his administration is limited in its ability to lower gas prices.
What matters most to me right now is the impact that rising prices have on you, he said in his weekly address broadcast Saturday. When youve got to spend more on gas, youve got less to spend on everything else. It makes things harder.
Obama has repeatedly said there is no silver bullet to stop prices from rising and that the issue is largely beyond his administrations control. The truth is: the price of gas depends on a lot of factors that are often beyond our control. Unrest in the Middle East can tighten global oil supply. Growing nations like China or India adding cars to the road increases demand, he said.
Its easy to promise a quick fix when it comes to gas prices. There just isnt one, he said. Anyone who tells you otherwise any career politician who promises some three-point plan for two-dollar gas theyre not looking for a solution. Theyre just looking for your vote.
Obama: Gas prices make things harder
First, thank you Captain Obvious.
Second, he’ll never touch a pump again in his life. I doubt he cares.
Weren’t high gasoline prices the fault of the prior administration?
(Between the Progressive psychotics in the electorate and all the phantom voters out there, the results of the 2012 election might be in the bag for all those visceral, adolescent Democrats who think they’re superior to the rest of humanity.)
And third, his administration has been frustrating exploration and development everywhere they can.
He claimed he could reduce the cost of health care, but now he says he can’t affect the price of gasoline. Hope and change.
Hope you have some change left...
It’s not just gas prices. It’s price inflation in general.
That’s why I’m stocking up on toilet paper. Toilet paper might be worth more than the Obama/Bernanke dollar at some point. If not, toilet paper will certainly hold its value better.
The last refinery built in the USA was in 1976, how many times has the population doubled since then? Even with them murdering 54+ million Unborn.

1. you do not feel our pain dipshit since you do not pay for gasoline.
2. What you can do immediately is suspend the FEDERAL TAX on gasoline.
3. Then stop saying oil is the energy from the past, stop subsidizing Chevy Volts. stop subsidizing failing “green” energy projects
the list is endless.
WOW! My eyes have been opened finally to the genius this man really is. Hold on Einstien, you’ve got a real challenge on your hands. Well, maybe not. Since nobody has seen any records from education endeavors, who knows? I’m thinkin’, not the top of the class. Probably not even in the middle.
Lying two faced sack of crap.

Obama Blames High Gas Prices On Washington
Democrat Barack Obama on Friday blamed high gasoline prices on Washington and a political establishment that he says hasn’t stood up to oil companies, his two rivals for the presidency included.
"What matters most to me right now is the impact that rising prices have on you, he said in his weekly address broadcast Saturday. When youve got to spend more on gas, youve got less to spend on everything else. It makes things harder.
and Romney's uncaring opinion about the poor.
They both indicate there is/are something "more important" than the reality of no money, no freedom.
America's freedom is ultimately linked to our cars and our wallets.
In MY lifetime, anyway, I've had both from an early age (via work), and if I can afford to drive anyplace ... I am absolutely free.
I wonder if college kids ever say today, "Road Trip ! ? !
Hussein can’t stop gas prices from rising but he can stop ocean levels from rising ?
Has HE or HIS FAMILY cut back? How do the gas prices affect them?
This affirmative-action Princess, nobama, will never place his limp-wristed hand on a gas pump. Does the moron even have a drivers license (or a birth certificate for that matter)?
harder??? try I’m scared out of my mind and I am NOT better off now than I was 4 years ago.
