Is Addressing High Gas Prices a Goal for the Obama Admin No

This isnt the first time President Obamas energy secretary has admitted his goal isnt to lower gas prices. In fact, in 2008 he told the Wall Street Journal we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe. And last year, Secretary Chu told Fox News Sunday the price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up just because of supply and demand issues as the Obama administration blocked efforts to expand Americas energy supply.
In other words, the next time you head to a gas station and prices have risen again remember: the Obama administration thinks you should be paying even more.
Addressing high gas prices that are hurting families and small businesses might not be a goal for the president, but it is for Republicans. The House has passed a series of jobs bills designed to remove barriers to energy production and stop policies that drive up gas prices for families and small businesses.
