Keep prices down and the politicians from taxing it and the economy will recover.

Who are you sending your directive to? As we have all been brainwashed this election cycle, the only reason for gas prices to be down is that the economy is in the dump!

So first gas prices were high because the economy was in the dump, but now gas prices are dropping because the economy is in the dump?

Too bad the federal and state governments are still pushing for an increase in the gas tax, because vehicles are more economical now, less money being spent on gas equals less in the paws of the government.

LOL…I wonder if there will be any posts congratulating Obama for the lower prices on gas, since there were so many posts blaming him when the prices were going up.
Hot debate. What do you think? 22 9
ROFLMAO…spot on Katy.
The prices today are merely confirmation of what was saying when prices skyrocketed right before election. Obama doesn’t control gas prices the oil companies do and they were trying to influence the election…and would appear the GOP was all on board with that as pushed a propaganda campaign to blame Obama.
One can’t blame the oil companies in way, they wanted to keep their tax breaks and Rommney was promising them more and even less regulations…what surprised about that it wasn’t transparent to everyone that they were being manipulated….and Nobody could figure out exactly why the prices shot up….DUH!!!

Year end, another record quarterly profit will be on display. And campaigns are paid for BOTH parties.
If you don’t believe there is a very close relationship between big oil and all politicians, you are living under a rock.

I expect any competing or alternative technologies to curb the use of oil would be bought or hidden by those whose profits would be lessened.

ctcmn~ Little trouble with reading comphrension?
I never said that there wasn’t also ties to all politicians. Of course they contribute to both parties to cover their bets but you have to be living under a rock if don’t think they’re biased to Repubs…but NONE of that has a thing to do with what I posted anyway…hello?
It was clearly going to be to big oil’s advantage with promise could keep tax cuts, get more cuts and more regulations waived if Rommney and Repubs won….so they tried to influence election …the prooof is in the pricing and the timing…now prices swing other direction….because Obama will push Green energy, so like Patrick said is only 2.89 in twin cities…relieves pressure and urgency for alternatives…
Or you can just assume that was coincidence that swung up to $4 out of clear blue couple weeks before election, nobody could figure out why the sudden spike in prices and yet the GOP were chatting heads off was Obama’s fault and now is down a dollar from then…I don’t believe so much in coincidences …especially when is money to be profited by big oil…it was actually smart move by them…yeah, they contribute to Dems too…but is fraction of what give GOP.

Fastone,,, Lil trouble with your memory? Gas went down shortly before the election. Seems as though certain politicians, NOT GOP, needed something positive, cuz of certain actions over seas.

Gas dropped from $3.78 to $3.50 a gallon prior to the Re-Election of Obama.
Compare that to the drop that happened in 2008 when the GOP was trying to keep the presidency… A drop from an average of $4.10 per gallon to $1.61 per gallon in less than 3 months.

CTCMM~ You are correct, my bad, the price did drop within two weeks of election but politicians don’t control the gas prices, the gas companies do.
If recall the prices shut up just prior to that for few weeks to record high in almost 5 years and Nobody could figure out why, but the GOP, Rommney and Faux News talking heads were all trying to blame Obama.
Now in that short window right before election that dropped…do you recall Obama or the Dems taking credit for it? I sure know Faux didn’t and would never, recant, and praise Obama for lower prices..they’re too fair and balanced for that…
mmm…obviously meant to say “the prices shot up”…not that they shut up….LOL
