Dont Blame Us: Gas Prices Have Doubled on President Obamas Watch

Congressman John Boehner
April 29, 2011


Gas prices have doubled now at more than $4 per gallon on President Obamas watch.  In response, the White House has just one message: Dont blame us.  As Reuters reported earlier this week, there is no silver bullet has become the White House go-to phrase for ignoring the American peoples call for meaningful solutions to combat rising gasoline prices. The American people want solutions, however, not excuses.  As the following chart (courtesy of the House Natural Resources Committee) shows, gas prices have doubled since President Obama took office:

The Presidents anti-energy policies are not just driving up gas prices, they are costing American jobs and perpetuating our dependence on foreign oil.  Heres a by-the-numbers look at how:

As yesterdays anemic GDP growth demonstrates, the Obama Administrations job-destroying, anti-energy policies are already adding to the economic burden weighing on American families and small businesses.  Next week, the new House majority will move forward on American Energy Initiative legislation that will boost American energy production to help lower prices and create jobs.  As Congressman Boehner noted in a statement yesterday, If the White House and Democrats are serious about lowering gas prices, they will work with us to pass this legislation and respond to the American people, who are demanding action to increase American energy.
