HOPE you saved CHANGE to buy GAS!
Except this Hope is gonna cost you.
The Obama Administration is floating the idea to tax every American by the MILE.
“Among other things, CBO suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.”
The average price of a gallon of regular-grade gasoline in the United States was $1.83 when Barack Obama took office. The average now is more than twice that, at $3.96.
It is undeniable that Obama’s energy policies have directly caused oil prices to jump, even though some would argue that oil is set by the global market. Here are some of the ways that Obama’s policies have made gas prices higher for each and every one of us:
First, let’s set out what the United States consumes in respect to what it produces of petroleum:
What’s the trend? We’re consuming a lot more, producing way less, and importing more. What was George Bush’s response to this? If you said he called for more domestic oil production, and “for a streamlined permitting process to help speed construction of new refining capacity in the US,” you’d be correct!
During the 2008 election, what was the Republican motto? It was, ‘Drill, Baby, Drill!“
Can you guess what our industry-hating president Obama might have done in response?
Do you remember how he and the Democrats mocked the Republicans for saying that drilling our own vast oil reserves could actually help our country?
You might be asking why he would want this, when high oil prices never translate into popular presidencies. If you don’t know already that this was all part of the plan before Obama even got into the white house, and that he told us this would happen, you should have been paying more attention.
Obama showed before he was even elected, that he doesn’t really object to the idea of gas at $4 a gallon so that American could get used to these new circumstances.
Further, Obama’s Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, was noted for his unflinching support of higher gas prices for Americans as far as $10 a gallon.
So, what can we do about it?
Well, there’s an easy way to protest these prices and the Obama policy that exacerbates them. CLICK on the image below to find out how to become a GAS PUMP ACTIVIST!
