Obama Aiming for Jimmy Carter’s Goal?

11 04 2012

A recent segment of Hannity showed that Obama is getting dangerously close to surpassing Jimmy Carter’s gas price percentage. Currently, the average gas price is near $4, which is up 90.2% (and according to US News up even more than that) from January 2009, when he was sworn into office. During the Carter administration, gas prices rose 103.77%. Is this what we want in a President that campaigned on a Hope and Change agenda. I personally don’t see a lot of hope in this. I guess things did change, but I can honestly say that they did not change for the better.

If Obama really wanted to help lower gas prices, he would have a different Energy Secretary. Steven Chu said, “Somehow, we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” Personally, I know that I do not want to pay nearly $7 or more for gas! This is not appropriate to do when there are numerous amount of people who cannot find jobs. Approving the Keystone pipeline would have been the ideal solution to both of these problems by allowing for more jobs to be created and more gas to easily shipped into this country.

If you don’t believe some of the facts, some of my sources are listed below:
