Gasoline prices are up over 100% since President Obama took office in 2008 and they are STILL climbing. When he took office, Obama declared war on fossil fuels, including coal, natural gas, and oil. He has continually refused to allow drilling on government lands for any of these resources. He also blocked offshore drilling and instead gave loans to Brazil for just the very same thing! Incidentally, the USA has the world's largest coal reserves. There's enough coal to power the US for many many years into the future.
What is Obama's solution? To close-down coal-fired electrical plants. Obama has directed the EPA to over-regulate coal plants and force them out-of-business altogether. This is decimating the entire state of West Virginia who's main industry is coal. Obama does NOT care. His actions are intentional and planned.
This year the EPA has closed 12 coal plants and in 2013 there's going to be double that number of closings. The important thing here is that Obama is NOT offering any alternatives to replace these closings. He's just deliberately creating an energy shortage. He's consciously causing energy prices (including gasoline) to spike at all time highs. In other words, you can expect the cost of your energy to continue to skyrocket - just as he promised before his election.
The Future of Energy Prices
Here is a good indication of exactly where Obama's energy policies are leading us.
Obama's Gas Prices
This is no joke. We all feel the pain at the gas pumps and see it reflected in all other areas of the economy as a direct result. All commodities are more expensive as every prices continue to spiral upwards. This is Obama's FUEL SHORTAGE.
To make matters worse, Obama's Green Energy investments have been depressing failures. Obama has thrown away borrowed and taxpayer monies towards several failed solar companies, the Chevy Volt, and several other failed electric car companies in Finland and elsewhere abroad.
Just Say No
When it comes time to pull the lever in November, remember who is causing you all this pain and suffering. It's not the "global demand" for energy. It's NOT supply and demand. It's NOT refinery fires.
It's President Obama's energy policies.
Seriously: Do you really want four more years of this?
