It's much like the lie that gas prices are cheaper today than under Bush; they're NOT. The average for 2008 under Bush was $3.23 a gallon, with it peaking for the one week that the media made certain to let EVERYONE know about being $4.09 a gallon. That was for one week and that's all people remember. Since 2011 under Obama it's been $3.45 a gallon on average and more, but it's never made the previous peak nationwide. It has exceeded the previous highs in California, Hawaii and other locations, just not everywhere. You're RIGHT on the the MANIPULATION factor though, and it's not just Big Oil.
