Forward! People cringe at rising gas prices; Ask Obama ‘why is gas so much?’

Wow. And not in the good way. Gas prices are continuing to rise, and the pain at the pump is cutting deeper. Some media outlets are conspicuously silent.

Non-lapdogs, however, aren’t remaining silent.

For those who have been paying attention, it’s not a surprise.

People are hurting, and take to Twitter to post about the continuously rising prices.

Guess they are just bitterly clinging to their transportation! Some are also trying to bitterly cling to their jobs, to which they soon may be unable to drive.

Others just can’t afford gas at all.

Why? Elections have consequences.

Citizens want answers. And some want Obama to “fix” things for them or hand over some more cash.

Obama is too worried about cameramen who “break his flow” to care about if  you can’t afford to let the gas pumps flow.

Consequences. Again.


Californians in shock as gas prices soar past $5/gallon to all-time record

Obama to America: Let’s lower gas prices…by redistributing oil subsidies to green scams!

Crushed unicorn dreams: ‘Why is my paycheck less’ turns to Obama vote regrets; ‘I should have voted Romney’

    “Why is gas so much?” There hasn’t been a new oil refinery built in the US for over 30 years?

    “Why is gas so much?” Hundred of billions wasted on Solar Panels, Windmills and Green energy money laundering schemes?

    “Why is gas so much?’” Slightly smaller sums in tax dollars wasted on Ethanol, which does nothing to improve gasoline.

      “wasted on Ethanol” Yes but enriches politically connected corn farmers.

      • Ben Bollman

        Oh yes, we are all politically connected. I wish everyone would quit demonizing Ethanol and us farmers. Look, I hate the subsidies as much as anyone and I think the government should stay out of it and let it come about naturally and quit taxing the hell out of everyone but I also hate that even people that believe the same as us use it as an opportunity to bash us farmers. If you were in our shoes and you live and die by a fluctuating market and a government that rapes your bottom line at both ends I can damn well bet you would take the money too. Blame the damn government and leave us farmers the hell out of it.

        • plaingolf

          Whoa there sir! I’m not in any way demonizing farmers. I’m a free market/ limited government advocate to the core. I was only pointing out a hint of hypocrisy in his rant there. By the way,I’m from a rural community and worked on potato farms at 12 yrs old moving irrigation pipe,bagging potatos, stacking pallets etc. So any holier then thou against me is misguided. Sorry to pop your little bubble there Biffy.

          • Ben Bollman

            I’m sorry, I got a bit riled up and I wasn’t really speaking to you directly but in general. I just get tired of seeing people blaming farmers for these subsidies as if it is something that we love taking. We get screwed at all ends and we live and die by whatever kneejerk reaction commodity investors and the government has in store for us. Because of Obamacare and tax law changes we are going to see changes that will more than likely put a good number of us out of business including tax rate hikes and limits on capital expenditures. I want the government to get rid of all subsidies and lower taxes so the costs of our inputs go down too so we can actually survive it, I just don’t like us being singled out like we are the big problem.

          • You’re mad. I’m glad.

            “McCain and Romney are terrible people?”

            Yes. Look at their records. I wouldn’t trust either in my house at the dinner table. Seriously, look at how Romney’s campaign treated their staff right after losing the bid for the presidency. Canceled their campaign credit cards before they could check out of their hotel rooms and sticking them with the bill. What a class act, that Mitt Romney.

            Also, if you think Matt has a clue, you’re out of your mind.

      • Jack Deth

        True, plaingolf:

        To the point where low grade feed corn is being grown and is taking over. Suitable for Ethanol and animals. but not so great or nutritious for human consumption.

        • Ben Bollman

          What? Where is this “low grade feed corn” you speak of? And if you better not say GMO’s.

    between the new taxes, the EPA’s rediculous regulations making it more expensive to produce fuel, & the fact that the economy is still in the crapper, how did anyone not believe that gas prices were going to spike? after all, it was leon penetta I believe that a couple years ago that they wanted gas to be as expensive here as it is in europe.

    • Canadian in USA

      Add to that increased taxes, the Obamacare fine if you don’t buy health insurance…all means less money for everybody. I wonder if Obama voters are getting it yet?

      • sb36695

        I don’t think they are capable of getting it. They’re called “useful idiots” for a reason. Let It Burn.


    This is what you get obama voters.

    • Ben Bollman

      Yep, the low info voters are getting a much needed dose of reality but too bad the blame will go to oil companies and health insurance companies. It’s too bad these idiots won’t wake up if ever until these companies go out of business and the government controls them.

      Hahahahahhahahahah I am with you, wish i could see their faces irl. Those Libtards foooools what more can you ask for.

    • Kevin Krom

      They’re not going to really “get it” until they make the connection that everything else they buy is more expensive because of the costs of producing it and getting it to the store are going up thanks to the same energy price increases.

  • David

    In the immoral, er immortal words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference does it make.” The fools voted moron Obama in for another four years. We are so screwed.

  • J.N. Ashby

    OOOO OOO! I know! More than half of the cost of gas is tax! Is that it? Yes? No?

    • Kevin Krom

      No, actually. I’m going from memory here, but I’m pretty sure that taxes are about 60 cents per gallon, or somewhere in that general range (varies by state/locality).

      • J.N. Ashby

        Ah wait, I misspoke. I meant to say the government takes in more taxes on gas than the oil companies take in profit. Sales tax, state excise tax, federal excise tax, corporate tax.

    I’m willing to bet that at least 60% of these tweeters who are complaining voted for this clown. The amusement is just beginning. Gosh ,this is why I was praying for an Obama victory and my dream has come true!

    Can someone inform the ‘dupes’ who voted for him that he really doesn’t give a sheet about you and your tiny little problems. He is too busy grasping power and finding ways to hold on to it indefinitely. Go away and leave the ‘Messiah’ alone now….

  • plaingolf

    How amusing! Seems that some of these tweeters haven’t been out in the real world for long. “What the heck @BarackObama 3.15 for gas?!” Guess that someone voted before they felt the true effect during their first year of college. Gas has been over $4 before. This is what you kids wanted. Live with your choices. Hahaha!

    • $36544368

      I’d be thrilled if gas would go back DOWN to $3.15 a gallon here in Los Angeles!

  • Conservaguy

    Wait, people are shocked that gas prices were going up and then just before the election they went down and now are going up again? And they are wondering why? We have one stupid electorate.

    Higher gas prices are a good thing. It will force Americans to stop driving comically large vehicles which get about 2 miles to the gallon.

    • Noah Lee

      what fucking automobiles are you driving that only get 2 miles a gallon?!

    • sb36695

      Sure, everyone can run out and buy a new car, just like Obama suggested! Not to worry comrades, there’s always public transportation until the strike. haha

  • GaryTheBrave

    Usually at this time of year gas prices are dropping. Wait until the Summer Driving Season kicks in. I predict it’ll be double where we are now.

    According to the EPA, gas prices rose about 70 cents in Bush’s first six years. After the Dems took control of Congress it nearly doubled in less than one year. As a matter of fact, that was the first time that gas prices rose in the Spring and Summer and DID NOT come down in the Fall. Only when Boss Bush (h/t to Chris Rock) even mention more drilling that petroleum prices started to drop.

    BTW, how high is the price of oil? Are these gas prices related to that? I noticed the press hasn’t mentioned oil commodity trading lately.

      So says the people that still blame Bush for everything. Besides if Romney was stonewalling construction of the keystone pipeline like Obama then he would be at fault.

        Funny how Faux News was saying it wasn’t Bush’s fault when gas was $4 in 2008, but now they’re about $3.60, they’re all over Obama.

      You do know that the single biggest source of electricity in this country is the burning of coal right? So if you drive a hybrid you really don’t do anything to help the environment. You just substitute one dirty source of energy for another.

    Obama is a Global Marxist bent on punishing the US for white colonialism….his goal is to implement Communism in the US while redistributing our money and resources overseas.

    Waxman was on NPR the other day railing against fracking, oil drilling, & coal mining in the US. Waxman then admitted that China and India are rapidly getting coal fired plants online at a rapid pace which is ok….why?

    According to Waxman & Obama, the US has had a 200 year unfair advantage on these countries which have been around for thousands of years before the US.

    Obama is intentionally destroying the US using Cloward Piven. Look it up.
    Obama’s policies don’t make sense if you think he has the US’s best interests at heart but he does not. And then it all becomes crystal clear.
