In August 2005, poster Chevy12 created a topic called - Gas Prices Won't Go Down Ti'll GWB Is Out Of Office! I wonder how many posters out there are now feeling the same way about President Obama.

Using the Gas Prices tab you will find that on Jan. 29, 2009 regular gasoline in the Coastal Bend was around $1.60 a gallon. It currently is at $3.09 and only 70 cents away from the $3.79 price set in 2008. Go to Chicago using the same time period it was $1.94 on Jan. 29 and is currently at $3.44 to $3.72.

And another bump of a dead thread. Sad.

"Gas Prices Won't Go Down Till President Obama Is Out Of Office!"

This unsubstantiated opinion has clearly been proven worthless, if not utterly foolish.

President Barack Obama’s policies "have resulted in gas prices being reduced from $3.07 per gallon when he was sworn in in 2009 to $2.30 today."

— Bobby Scott on Friday, January 9th, 2015 in a news release.

"I don't know about you, but I'm getting used to these low gas prices...Thanks, Obama!"

ROTFL

Obama has done everything he can to keep oil and gas prices HIGH!

But like a true NARCISSIST, he now takes credit for what he has fought AGAINST.

ROTFL

And the sycophant supporters of the Boy King are ever so ready to bow down, praise him and yell "BOOM!"!!

How sad that America has come to this.

"Just goes to show you how good for the economy fracking is. In spite of everything Obama has done in his war on fossil fuels, fracking has overcome it."

July 5, 2013
Fracking involves injecting pressurized water combined with sand and small amounts of chemicals to crack open shale rocks so that they will release trapped natural gas. Generally, the shale rocks are thousands of feet below the aquifers from which people draw drinking water. No doubt to the dismay of activists, President Barack Obama appears to endorse the process. "Sometimes there are disputes about natural gas," he said at his climate change speech last week at Georgetown, "but let me say this: We should strengthen our position as the top natural gas producer because, in the medium term at least, it not only can provide safe, cheap power, but it can also help reduce our carbon emissions."

President Barack Obama and many other Democrats think there’s little to be gained by building the Keystone XL pipeline.

Predicting the effect of the pipeline on gas prices is a little tricky. Experts tend to agree that it could impact gas prices, but the effect would be indirect and minimal. But in this fact check, we’re going to focus on the export question -- whether or not, as Obama said, Keystone XL’s primary destination is beyond the United States.

We found that Obama’s off the mark.

Obama Says Keystone XL is For Exporting Oil Outside the U.S., Experts Disagree

We rate Obama’s claim Mostly False.

Yes, of course. When gas prices rose, Pelosi & Co. vilified George W. Bush, but nary a word when gas prices dropped. When gas prices skyrocketed under Obama, not a word from anyone, not even the media.

Now that gas prices dropped like a rock, everyone wants to give Obama "credit".

If it wasn't for hypocrisy and ignorance, liberals wouldn't have anything to say about anything...

And is currently at $2.39 and still falling (the cheapest it has been since we were in the depths of the Great Recession)...

Out getting gas prices this afternoon. Noted a gas station that was at Bush's peak in 2008 $4.14 a gallon. Today, it was $2.14 a gallon. Prices down exactly $2 a gallon.

Also found a price that hadn't been updated in a while but it was not stale yet. The price dropped 30¢ a gallon!

Indeed, those ODS blinders you're wearing will not allow you to see anything else.

Yes, you're the same people who will credit Bush for taking out Bin Laden, but would have blamed OBAMA ONLY if that mission went sour...

Forgive me, but I have to ask ....

So, according to some GBytes here, Obama single handedly decided to force the oil industry to accept all that extra money from exorbitant prices consumers have been paying for gas?

Secondly,

wasn't this price "conspiracy" actually stated by Bush, since the highest ALL time gas prices for US were back when Bush was still in office?

Gas prices are going down despite OBAMA, OBAMA just took the alaskan bristol bay (52,000 sq miles ) off from exploration for oil. It is fracking on private lands which is supplying the extra oil and gas which is driving down gas prices. OBAMA still bans oil shale (3 trillion barrels of oil, anwr with 90 billion barrels of oil, all of the usa coast except for what is being utilized in the gulf of mexico, he has a war on coal. JUST Think how much cheaper gasoline would be if the energy companies are unleashed by OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Don't forget gas was at about $1.75 when this opec employee took office in 2009.

Fracking has been in use for around 100 years, the first use of the technique was suggested in the 1860's and the first use by 1949. Over 2 million wells have been fracked. FAR from "relatively new."

Of course, for liberals, history began yesterday, and since liberals never really noticed it nor "decided" it was bad until the last couple of years when Democrats have made it an election issue for ignorant - er - "low information voters" you've probably never heard of it before.

For your liberals that want to cry like babies about people being injured and killed in oil and coal related accidents...

Sell your car, and sit in the dark.

That way you're not wasting precious fossil fuels.

I've actually started to hear a lot recently... higher frequency of earthquakes, etc.

I don't think the long-term impacts are well-understood yet given the use of fracking is relatively new.

Speaking of which, I once worked at a factory that used therminal oil as the heat source for some products. We had a pipe rupture and a man was burned, and later died from his burns. Accidents do happen. More often than not, industrial accidents of this nature are due to faulty pipe, not usually unsafe practices.

"Just goes to show you how good for the economy fracking is. In spite of everything Obama has done in his war on fossil fuels, fracking has overcome it."



Maybe for the economy..but not so much for some of the workers:

"QUAKER CITY – One man was injured in an explosion last night at an oil fracking site near Quaker City.

The man, whose name has not yet been released, was transported via medical helicopter to the burn unit at Akron Children's Hospital, according to the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office. The accident happened at 11:41 p.m. Friday.

The sheriff's office could not elaborate on his overall condition, nor the extent of his burns."



Conservatives never want to talk about the downside to Fracking...wonder why...





"The rupture of a pipe at a Colorado fracking site left one Halliburton employee dead and two seriously injured Thursday morning, law enforcement and company officials said..

Workers were trying to warm a frozen pipe at a site near Fort Lupton, Colo., about 30 miles north of Denver, when it burst around 9:30 a.m., Sgt. Sean Stanridge, public information officer for the Weld County Sheriff's Office, told the Los Angeles Times.

One person died at the scene and the injured were taken to area hospitals. One underwent surgery, and both are expected to survive, Stanridge said.

The industrial site is operated by Anadarko Petroleum Corp., and Halliburton employees are contracted to work on the grounds, Anadarko spokesman John Christiansen said.

"This is a very difficult time for all of us at Halliburton, and we are working with local authorities as they look into the details of this incident," the company said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with our employees’ loved ones."

yeah, Just think how much CHEAPER GAS would be if the Government would
1.) Approve the KEystone Pipeline
2.) Allow development of the ANWR reserves where on estimates put it at 90 billion barrels
3.) Allow development of the oil shale In colrado and wyoming of 3+ TRILLION BARRELS
4.) Allow constructiuon of new oil refineries
5.) Off shore drilling of every other offshore site outside of the current Gulf OF MExico Territory
6.) Allow constructiuon of NEw Nuclear Power plants where electricity can substitute for some oil uses
7.) Back the coal industry instead of trying to destroy it coal can be converted into gasoline and other petro products
8) Encourage fracking instead of trying toi find a fake and phony reason to stop it
9) JUST THINK HOW MUCH CHEAPER GASOLINE WOUILD BE!!!!!

Obama has not tried to hide the fact that he wants green energy. I have no problem with that as long as it is affordable. Obama doesn't care if it is affordable because he is locked into the fantasy of manmade global warming caused by Co2.

I don't blame Obama as the only reason prices went up. But he has done nothing to try to bring them down because low energy prices hurt his green agenda.

"Some fool posted a topic "Gas prices won't go down until Bush is out of office.""

Yes, they did. Sadly...

"The poster here did this as a counterpoint to show how foolishly inane the original "bush" topic was."

If that were the case, the point was already made. Unfortunately, I don't see any satire here.

"As one radio personality says "don't take my word for it. Do your own research.""

Beck's idea of research is to see what comes out of the fortune cookies he is stuffing his face with...

"Gas prices are coming down in spite of Obama. Maybe even just to spite him."

<facepalm>...
