No it isn't. The less one spends on gas, the more money one will have to spend in other areas of the economy. One reason car sales dipped was because of high gas pries.

And the fact that you refer to the President as Obozo, that only tells me this isn't really about gas prices.

You are using logic. When it comes to hating Obama, most folks do not use logic.

I read somewhere that is was $1.89 a gallon somewhere here in the U.S.

Listen, folks: the president has nothing to do with prices at the pump. No president - Bush or Obama - should be either credited or blamed for what the price of oil is.

So have at it libs, tell us what a genius Obama is. The economy is tanking again and he and his buds at the NYT are ginning up a fake culture war about womens rights - http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/11/us...0rights&st=cse

And no fair blaming Bush, the "new normal" is Obama's achievement.
You can thank Obama again, gas is now less than $2.50 a gallon in Chicago. Heard it's hovering around $2.10 a gallon in Mississippi.
