Every Friday we always look at the gas prices around the area.
We were doing special reports about how much was was...when it hit this level a year ago.
Now..is this the new norm?
I think back when president bush was in office.
Back then..I'd drive by a gas station and see gasoline costing more that 2 dollars a gallon.
One time I saw it hit 2.30, and I actually thought...I'm glad most of my older relative are dead because if they saw this they surly would be,
back when gas was in the 2 dollar price I remember many of the northeastern liberal democrats like chuck schumer of new York...holding news conferences at gasoline stations in new York state.
We'd hear the same old tired lines about working families and yadda yadda.
Not that gasoline if reaching the near 4 dollar make here....nothing.
Not a peep.
I've actually seen some stories written..of course by journalists on the east coast that the price of fuel really doesn't matter anymore?
I remember gasoline was averaging about 1.86 a gallon when Barrack Obama was sworn it.
Then..he declared war on anything having to do with traditional energy and we've raised the price.
Now..the learned liberals tell us we have a good start.
Let is raise prices even more and we can strap a windmill on our cars.
In an election year if gasoline was 4 dollars a gallon this would be in every talking point guide for every liberal politician.
i have also noticed that when dems are in the white house there is never a homeless problem either.
If Romney wins this thing i can bet your November the 7th at 8 am....the high price of fuel garnered by rich republican will be the topic of every talking head Sunday show that next weekend.
That's my point of view what's yours?
