Thanks to the events in the Middle East, the Democratic party’s refusal to allow new refineries to be built, and the illegal Gulf of Mexico offshore drilling moratorium, we can thank President Obama and his party for the higher gas prices Americans will now all be enjoying.
Capitol Commentary thought we’d provide a handy guide to gas prices set to photos.
But before we dive into this guide, let’s see what one Lefty wrote about gas prices under George W. Bush:
Another possible reason [why Bush added to the Strategic Oil Reserve] is this: The only way to get oil companies willing to make investments in drilling new sources of oil is to keep oil prices high. The nice thing about this methodology is that criticism can be so easily deflected as a White House spokesman did in a recent interview, by claiming the “purchases were for national security reasons.”
Whatever the motivation, this much is clear: American citizens had to pay and are still paying a hefty price for gasoline and home heating oil. In the end, regardless of the lip service Mr. Bush may offer to the American people on how he is benefiting all citizens, the facts show he benefits those corporations who made large contributions to his campaigns.
