RightChange: Gas Jumps To $6 Per Gallon In Some Areas


Economists predicted gas prices would hit either $4 or $5/gallon by this summer.  It’s February and they are already hitting $5/gallon and beyond. Take Washington D.C. for example, one gas station is charging $5 per gallon. In Florida, drivers are shelling out nearly $6/gallon at some stations.

President Obama said under his plan, energy prices would “necessarily skyrocket.”  His Energy Secretary, Steven Chu has echoed the same in the past.  This has been part of the Obama energy plan all along:

“President Barack Obama’s Energy secretary unwittingly created a durable GOP talking point in September 2008 when he talked to The Wall Street Journal about the benefits of having gasoline prices rise over 15 years to encourage energy efficiency.

“Somehow,” Chu said, “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

Chu, a Nobel-winning physicist and director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, was not yet a member of the not-yet-in-existence Obama administration. But Republican politicians and conservative pundits have seized on his words as evidence that the White House is deliberately driving gasoline prices higher — ensuring that Chu’s remarks are the energy policy sound bite that will not die.”

Clearly, this has been Obama’s plan from the beginning.  Imagine what gas prices will be when he doesn’t have to answer to voters in 2016.  Four more years of Obama is four more years of failed energy policies.
