Obama’s Energy Plan: The Chevy Volt


Three years ago, the national average for a gallon of regular grade gasoline was around $1.70. The price climbed to $2.60 in 2009 and $2.80 a year later. As of November 11, 2011, gas prices rose to an average of $3.45 per gallon, roughly twice as much as what we were paying in 2008.

When gasoline prices hit their peak at around $4.00, Democrats were demanding Bush’s head on a platter, but under Obama the higher prices are simply the new normal. Rather than take steps to curb rising fuel prices, the administration is waging its own ideological war – against energy independence – by drilling regulations and moratoriums that, according to Steve Forbes, “is fueling an energy crisis that could bring this nation to its knees.”
