I voted for the guy and voted for him again. But lowered fuel prices are more a sign of recession than anything else. And in this case it's a result of the European recession and China's slowing growth.

Hey, if the Right blamed Obama for rising gas prices and hammered at him for "not doing anything about it", then he should get the credit when prices come down.  I mean, it's only fair, right?

Umm .. Wat?


Gas is up 30 cents here in the last week. (Cincinnati)

That's great because the unemployment numbers jumped 25% at the same time he was elected.

All those unemployed people can at least get some cheaper gas.

Just remember, the only reason we've ever had low gas prices is because of a recession, according to el presidente.
Never mind the fact that local prices for me are higher recently for me.

Oh well, the president said he'd pay for my gas and mortgage so I'm not worried.

Fox will go back into "low gas prices are bad for the economy" or just not mention it.

Yeah but I still haven't gotten my bag of gifts. I know they are going out because Romney found out about em.

I was counting on that beer koozy and box of prophylactics 3 days ago.

And I lost my Obamaphone in game of dice. How do I get another one?

Outside of my polling place there was a 12 year old Bobby Hill looking kid with a hand drawn sign that read

ROMNEY = $2 GAS
OBAMA = $5 GAS

I'm kind of wondering why he didn't lower gas prices before the election.

I wanted to get free solar panels for my house, but I guess I'll settle for cheaper gas. #ObamaGifts

When Bush controlled the price of gas he dialed it down to $2, current Dear Leader still screwing us over.

This is obviously a liberal plot!! What is Obummers endgame here? Distraction from Benghazi?!?! (is it a scandal yet?) Distraction from Petraeus? Distraction from the UFO's in Denver? Distraction from McCain being a shiatbird? Distraction from Romney's supporters fleeing from him? Distraction from the secession of ALL the states in the Union?

IT'S A TRAP!

Oh good, then I am sure GITMO will be closing, we will pull out of Afghanistan and he will lead the charge for a balanced budget that both raises taxes and increases spending!

It cracks me up to see how easily derpacrats and libtards are bought off even as they accuse others of greed.

I love that the public considers gas prices a reflection on how the president is doing... i spend $35-40 a month on gas, it is such a small part of the monthly nut for people that it shouldn't even matter.. thats less than 1 nights dinner.

And bush had it at $2? So what.. bush was a war criminal that kills thousands of american kids for NO REASON AT ALL.. I think i would be fine with $6 a gallon if it gave those moms their kids back.. but thats just me...

But libtards and derpacrats all drive Priusii or ride bikes. Gas wasn't one of our gifts. You didn't get invited to the Liberal Gift Commission prior to the elections, so you have no idea what we're getting.

Gas was going down all the way up to the election, since then, it's up 20 to 30 cents a gallon throughout the city (Denver)

Glad to see El Presidente has finally figured out how to work the "Lower Gas Prices" lever in the Oval Office. How could he be so stupid?!

Great..... now we are patting the president on the back for gas prices as opposed to 2 months ago when he was being painted as a horrible person........

I know there are people here who know this, but fwiw - Gas Prices & the Presidency Myth - (google)

So when prices go up its Bush fault and when they go down its Obama's but yet presidents have no control over the prices. Got it. Let the felating of Barry the Giver continue

I biatch when the price goes up, I'm happy when the price goes down, all without imaging vast conspiracies behind it.

I heard the conspiracy people claiming that Obama lowered the price of gas in Ohio right before the election just to get people to vote for him.

He's also lowered stock and bond prices the past couple weeks, too. It's a trifecta!

Management put the company in to bankruptcy while giving themselves 80% raises, and it's the worker's fault.

Do you feel your ideology slipping away in to history's dustbin yet?

Bush was an utter failure. He was not stupid, a monkey or incompetent. He failed because he pissed away our money trying to nation build, cut taxes when spending was increasing and most important of all HE WAS A DIVISIVE LEADER.

Obama is not stupid, a monkey or incompetent. He is failing because he is pissing away our money and continuing tax cuts while spending is increasing and nation building in Afghanistan continues and HE IS A DIVISIVE LEADER.

But fark that noise, lets keep throwing insults and calling people with mildly different ideologies names. So how about all the donkeys in this nation just step up and admit they are jackasses.

Every gas station around here has been in a $3.49 holding pattern since the election. Except one place. The day after the election they jumped to $3.71. The station owner is a known Obama hater. Not just a Romney supporter, an Obama hater. It is a full service station and depending on what bumper sticker you have, that is how fast you get served.

No one here is saying that, you knob. The headline was a troll.

However, I do have to drive by this every day.

When I bought the Prius in 08 the price of gas started to drop and I felt like a fool. A few months later not so much.

If any of you Farkers have Pres Obama's number, would you please ask him to call my boss and give me the day off?

I owe you one.

Holy crap, Obama's ju-ju is so powerful he can will millions in or out of work in a week? He shouldn't be president, make him lord master for life and send all the virgin sacrifices demanded to keep him on your side.
