Hope you like Obama’s $4 a gallon, he is likely to force the $4 price per gallon higher, his Volts make sense he thinks. Do Volts make any sense to you?
Or does Mitt Romney’s plan of actually drilling for oil make more sense to you….
The stupid part is you are paying for the Chevy Volts, reported to cost about $40k more than their selling price each.
Gas prices have more than doubled since Barack Obama took over the White House. But that didn’t stop him from cutting off drilling in August in half of Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve.
The Chevy Volt makes no sense to most people…
The Obama Administration planned for higher gas prices and fewer jobs through their many job-killing decisions.
President Obama is campaigning as a champion of the oil and gas boom he’s had nothing to do with, and even as his regulators try to stifle it. The latest example is the Interior Department’s little-noticed August decision to close off from drilling nearly half of the 23.5 million acre National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska.
The area is called the National Petroleum Reserve because in 1976 Congress designated it as a strategic oil and natural gas stockpile to meet the “energy needs of the nation.” Alaska favors exploration in nearly the entire reserve. The feds had been reviewing four potential development plans, and the state of Alaska had strongly objected to the most restrictive of the four. Sure enough, that was the plan Interior chose.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says his plan “will help the industry bring energy safely to market from this remote location, while also protecting wildlife and subsistence rights of Alaska Natives.” He added that the proposal will expand “safe and responsible oil and gas development, and builds on our efforts to help companies develop the infrastructure that’s needed to bring supplies online.”
