WOW, 47 CENTS A GALLON … WELL ACTUALLY 47.9 CENTS.
Gas prices hit an amazing low of 47 cents a gallon in as a price war broke out between three gas stations in in Houghton Lake, Michigan. I cannot even remember when gas prices were that low. You could imagine the reaction by Americans when they saw prices fall to such a low price. Could you imagine being able to fill your car up from with an empty tank for less than $9.00? Of course these low gas prices and cost for barrels of oil are having other adverse affects on our economy.
The price of gas hit a stunning low — just 47 cents per gallon — in Michigan on Sunday.
Michigan was the first state to have gas under $1 in likely over a decade, Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy.com, told ABC News today.
A gas station in Houghton Lake, Michigan, hit the 47 cents mark after a price war between three stations in the town, DeHaan said.
GasBuddy.com’s data goes back to 2000 and DeHaan said he couldn’t find any other averages that low in the U.S.
“This is something we don’t see often at all or ever,” DeHann said. “That’s unheard of.”
DeHann said he believed the next lowest price in the country was about $1.29, at a station in Virginia.

UNREAL … YOUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS HANDED OVER TO SO-CALLED GREEN ENERGY AND NO ACCOUNTABILITY.
The Daily Caller is reporting that the IRS has handed out billions of dollars to support Barack Obama’s green energy projects. You know, those one’s like those unsuccessful and bankrupt companies like Solyndra. And it gets worse, if possible. The IRS is not tracking the money to see how it was being spent. ARE YOU KIDDING, WHEN WILL THIS ALL STOP!!! The IRS, the organization who makes people’s lives miserable for not properly tracking their income, does not have to do the same with tax payer dollars? Talk about the ultimate in hypocrisy. Honestly, the IRS really does need to be abolished and converted into an entity that just counts the tax revenue sent in by Americans from a flat or fair tax and no longer allowed to harass or divvy out monies at the bequest of a president.
A new government watchdog report found that the Internal Revenue service has handed out billions of dollars to support green energy projects, and then failed to mention how the money was spent on building new power generation.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that IRS tax subsidies to green energy operators “accounted for an estimated $13.7 billion in forgone revenue to the federal government for renewable projects and $1.4 billion for traditional projects” between 2004 and 2013.
That’s a lot of money, but the IRS can’t (or won’t) tell government auditors how much green energy generating capacity their tax subsidies are supporting. The GAO says the IRS “is not required to collect project level data from all taxpayers” who claim an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) or Production Tax Credit (PTC).
“IRS officials stated that IRS is unlikely to collect additional data on these tax credits unless it is directed to do so,” the GAO reported. “Since 1994, GAO has encouraged greater scrutiny of tax expenditures, including data collection. Without project-level data on the ITC and PTC, Congress cannot evaluate their effectiveness as it considers whether to reauthorize or extend them.”

OBAMA VETOES US JOBS …
Barack Obama vetoes the Keystone XL Pipeline bill. The bill was passed by a bipartisan vote in both the House and the Senate; however, Obama is driven by his far LEFT agenda and seems to care more about that than providing jobs that pay more to American workers than minimum wage. Following the shellacking that Democrats took in the 2014 elections, Obama called for cooperation and for Democrats and Republicans to work together. We all knew it was BS at the time, but it sounded good from a president who had just lost the Senate. Since then Obama has done nothing to strengthen his words of cooperation, but instead has engaged in confrontation. The veto of the Keystone XL Pipeline bill, going against the will of the people and their elected representatives, is just the latest in Obama’s actions that go along with his “imperial’ far LEFT agenda of its my way or the highway.
Obama said following his veto, “The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously. But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people.” REALLY, WHO KNEW? Exactly how is Obama taking his responsibility to the American people when the American people are in favor of the Keystone Pipeline? Critics of the bill say will cause environmental damage. Hmm, you mean like the one below in how oil is currently transported in the United States.
I guess Obama would rather have train accidents occur, like the one recently in West Virginia, that resulted in a fiery explosion. Guess what the train was carrying … that’s right, crude oil. The train, which was carrying North Dakota crude to an oil depot in Yorktown, Virginia, derailed in a small town 33 miles southeast of Charleston, causing 20 tank cars to catch fire. The environmentalist wackos seem to be rather quiet. Obama cares nothing about the people, he cares about his far left agenda.
Amid appeals for bipartisanship, President Barack Obama in just three days has provoked Republicans on issues as disparate as immigration, Wall Street and the Keystone XL pipeline — a combative mix of defense and offense that underscores Washington’s political realignment.
Sensing a Republican retreat, Obama is headlining a Miami town hall on Wednesday, enlisting his Latino base of support to increase pressure on GOP lawmakers who want to tie spending on the Homeland Security Department to repeal of his immigration executive actions.
On Tuesday, he vetoed GOP legislation that would have forced construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. And on Monday he proposed tougher rules on financial brokers who help manage retirement accounts, over Wall Street objections.
