Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said that "no one knows" if gasoline prices in the United States will reach $9 per gallon, and acknowledged that the possibility is outside his control.

Unfortunately the secretary is hoping it goes over $9.
Pray for America
Getting rid of Salazar is one of the most important reasons to get rid of Obama.

What would it be at $9/gal?
