Where is the MSM? Remember When Obama Trashed Republicans for High Gas Prices During 2008 Election

 

REMEMBER WHEN GAS WAS UNDER $2/GAL? OF COURSE NOT, THAT WOULD REQUIRE THE MEDIA TO ACTUALLY CARE TO REPORT IT.

Remember when Barack Obama was trashing Republicans for the high price of gas during the 2008 Presidential election? The gas prices have more than doubled, $1.84 to $3.85, since Obama took office, yet the silence in deafening from the MSM informing America. The corrupt liberal media complex is so in the tank, pardon the pun, that it would be simply unheard of for the media to remind America that they are not better off today than they were four years ago.

From CNS News:

Average retail gasoline prices have more than doubled under President Obama, according to government statistics, rising from $1.84 per gallon to $3.85 per gallon.

The average gasoline price is calculated by the Energy Information Agency, and shows that over the past 43 months of President Obama’s term retail gasoline prices have more than doubled, rising from an average of $1.84 per gallon to $3.85 per gallon.

Rising gasoline prices were particularly prevalent in August, which saw a 9.0 percent rise in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for gasoline, a rise that almost entirely accounts for the general increase in prices seen by families across the country over the past month.

Just curious, what energy independence plan did Obama come up with in the last four years? Question two, who thinks if Obama was a Republican that the price of gas and unemployment rate would lead every new broadcast?

      California gasoline is $4.17 (regular) or worse. California
      food prices are skyrocketing now as well. Cause: Government
      wasteful spending and reckless borrowing coupled with reckless
      printing of money. If you are on a fixed income or live off savings,
      do the math! If you don’t have work, do the math regarding when
      the entitlements and/or retirement promises will end.

      What do Iran sanctions cost you? About 25 cents a gallon, experts say.

      Gas prices: Why are they so high?
      Drivers in North America are now competing with the rest of the world for cheap American crude oil, Schaefer writes. The result? High gas prices.

      Wait until the Keystone pipeline can supply the oil hungry world with oil you thought was “American”, it’s just priced in dollars

      I can’t wait to see this headline :
      “Newly found oil reserves in Norh Dakota reported to be worth $1000 billion Yuan”

      SM: Actually, have you checked out the unemployment rate in ND and the revenues they are bring into the state? McDonald’s positions for $15/hr with $1000 signing bonuses.

      Imagine, just imagine if Obama had allowed drilling of oil and natural gas on govt land and did not have a war on fossil fuel. Throw in clean coal as well. But of course Obama would rather have people on food stamps and dependent on govt than working.

      Paid almost 4.00 per gallon here in Mass today.

      How soon we forget, eh Barry? And what would the reason be for this? That in less than four years time prices at the pump have doubled?

      Oh, that must be Dubya’s fault, too? Damn it, people- less than 50 days to go till November elections—when will the insanity, spending, denials, lies and incompetence stop?

      Take the Country back, America!

      oil production has gone up 10% and natural gas production has gone up 20% under Obama, spank me if I’m wrong, I’m not
