Gas prices under Bush vs Gas prices under Obama


I'm not sure if this has been posted on this board in the past but I would like to get the Poli Boards opinion on this.

re: Gas prices under Bush vs Gas prices under Obama


Presidents have very little, if anything to do with the price of gas. People are idiots and those idiots are allowed to vote. Scary isn't it?

It's Obama's fault. just like it was Bush's fault. What's good for the goose is good for the gander

Someone should have explained that to BHO during the primaries and election in 2008. Idiots are allowed to be president. Scary isn't it?

I understand this but I thought that it was interesting how it was a big talking point in the last election.

I can name a few Republicans blaming Obama for the high prices, oh they're trying to become President. Goes both ways

All his fault. Obviously, trying to make his friends rich. I can't believe this greedy bastard.

What do you want him to do?? There is nothing Obama can do about high gas prices!

Outrage usually turns to acceptance when your guy is in office. Many libs who blasted Bush for Gitmo and the Patriot Act seem to be fine with both today.

speculators control most of the gas prices. however, they go by what they hear and research. so, if your president says, "i am opening up more drilling", then you can bet your ass, speculators use this as first hand info to lower the prices.

they don't speculate for the "now". they speculate for the "future.

Most of the speculators pay very little attention to what's going on in the US. It all revolves around one little part of the world.

Are you trying to argue against idiots or be one yourself?

All I know is that for every penny that the gas price increases, another life is saved.

Completely agree.


Hey fellas. I'm a Republican who blames Obama for high gas prices, and I'm not running for President. I think I might know 1 or 2 others who share my opinion.

I agree that the President doesn't set the price of gas, but to say that he doesn't have any influence is insane.

A president who lets it be known that he thinks 5 dollar a gallon gas will help give us the push we need to find an alternative energy source definitely does not help lower prices.

I'm as fiscally conservative as they come, but the presiednt doesn't have all that much to do with the price of gas. It certainly doesn't help, though, that Obama has delayed the Keystone pipleine and put a draconian moratorium on the Gulf region.

There is an overwhelming amount of evidence to show that oil and gas prices are mostly determined by market fundamentals. Speculators are a scapegoat.
