It's part of the job.

We can't give obama a pass simply because he is loved and adored and protected by the media.

He is to blame.
This is soooooo true

Well, if one is going to blame the President, what do you want him to do about it? The country has been talking about an energy policy since the Ford Administration but the nation is unwilling to do what needs to be done.

If one wants more gasoline, it makes sense to conserve what we use. So why has the average car's horsepower doubled over the last 20 years? Certainly, if we are serious about better mileage, we wouldn't demand high HP cars.

Obama got the prices down a few months after getting into office from the disastrous republican administration.

U.S. gas prices
Actually gas was $1.73 here, not $1.85. Your own bias is showing.
