Forget the oil companys, Obama is behind the gas price
Obama has declared open war on anyone consuming oil based fuel in America!
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said, "We don't believe that the 'drill, baby, drill' program. Is this why they have all but stopped domestic drilling by putting so much of our own oil off limits, offshore, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), the Bakken Formation to name but a few examples.
But we knew that high fuel prices is what Obama wanted; In 2008, now-Energy Secretary Steven Chu said, "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe."
In less than one month after taking office Obama began work on his high gas prices by reversing George W. Bush's expansion of offshore oil drilling.
In April 2010, the administration enacted an illegal moratorium on offshore drilling. The administration persisted with its policy even after multiple court rulings against the moratorium and the administration was even ruled in contempt!
Now the national average for gas is approaching $4 per gallon. According to the U.S. Energy Department, the average yearly cost for an American family to fill up the car with gas will rise 28 percent from last year, or about $700. A family can't lose that much money without also losing the ability to buy other goods or services. The price of gasoline has skyrocketed by 67 percent since Barack Obama took office!
The fact is, that Obama's energy policy is working exactly the way it was designed to work. Drive up the price of oil!
Hope and change, hope and change…how is that working out for all us middle class children as father Obama continues to destroy America and empower himself.
