Now, only about 30% say Obama can do anything about them. 40% of Republicans thought Bush could do something about them, now 60% think Obama can. Interesting.

lol, who the fuck cares about gas prices? Only people dumb enough to buy a fucking H2, or dumb enough to drive 2 hours each direction for work...

Republicans are stupid, just wait until Romney starts dropping bombs on Iran... they gonna go up a lot more...

Yay for partisanship! More kool-aid please!

Maybe I should qualify that with a "...just wait until Obama starts dropping bombs on Iran..." the same thing is gonna happen. Either way, someone is gonna be dropping bombs on Iran after November 2012, so we know that regardless of who gets elected gas is going to be going up.

Well, up until Bush Jr. Republicans were propped up by the oil industry. The oil industry would raise oil prices significantly prior to an election, then drop them significantly if republicans won the upper hand. Since democrats are so into selling out, will they continue to bother with this practice or not? Voters really don't know for sure if electing a republican will save them money at the pump.

Obama intends to do nothing about gas prices and hopes to see them rise to the levels common in Europe (6-7/gallon) in order to 'spur and speed up alternative energy source development'..... while fully intending to assist the BRICS kill the USD.

Need supporting links?

Amazing silence from all the bi-party tools, well not really, sociopaths are reasonably predictable.

True that.

It's called politics. What Obama can do and probably will do is release from the strategic oil reserves which would put some temporary downward pressure on prices. Also, of course were a deal made with Iran prices would also go down.

Sounds about right. Just like Dems are cool with bombing now, and R is making a stink about it.

Total hypocrisy, no matter where you go.
