Obama Threatens to Raise Gas Prices

You may remember that prior to being elected President, Obama promised to make energy prices "skyrocket." Once he was President, Obama not only went after the coal and natural gas industries--as he had promised--but also blocked oil drilling on federal land. Now he is making overt threats about raising gas prices. The Detroit News reports that while visiting a shuttered factory for "green" cars, Obama stated:
“I would strongly advise American consumers to continue to think about how you save money at the pump because it is good for the environment, it’s good for family pocketbooks and if you go back to old habits and suddenly gas is back at $3.50, you are going to not be real happy,” Obama said in an exclusive telephone interview with The Detroit News on Tuesday, the eve of his visit to Ford’s Michigan Assembly plant in Wayne.

Obama said “folks should enjoy” low gas prices, but cautioned that they won’t be around forever. Americans could sock away some of the money, “or better yet” buy a new car or new appliance, he said.
Obama: committed to destroying the American economy.

How will he commit this feat. Well, for one, the RHINOs in Congress will help by imposing a new gas tax supposedly for infrastructure repair.
