To the editor:
The average national price for a gallon of regular gas in January 2009 was $1.84. AAA just reported the national average price for a gallon of regular gas is $3.83, more than a 100 percent increase.
Many are saying this has absolutely nothing to do with Obama, yet he and his energy secretary seem intent on chasing after alternative energy resources at the expense of traditional fossil fuels. When point blank asked if the goal was to reduce gas prices, Energy Secretary Chu summarily answered, “No.”
So, how’s this working out for your wallet? Having a little pain at the pump? Keep on believing Obama wants to help out the middle class until your car is parked in the garage because you can’t afford to fill it up — and we’ve not seen the highest high of a gallon of gas---not even close.
