Who is to blame for rising gas prices? The radical right hopes you’ll blame Obama, but here are the facts …
Therefore, 60-65% of the cost of a barrel of oil can be directly attributed to Republicans. Take Republicans out of the equation and oil and gas prices would be low, very low. But the right-wing insists on maintaining the status quo because:
- Republicans benefit greatly from high oil and gas prices. Republican-owned oil and gas companies are in a several year trend of record profits.
- Republicans hope that Americans will blame Obama for the pain they are feeling at the pump.
GOP candidates and Republican leaders keep repeating “Obama” and “high gas prices” in the same phrase thinking that Americans are just dumb-enough to buy the lie they’re peddling. Fortunately, we live in the information age and the internet allows us to research these things and share that information with others. So please, share this post with your friends and family.
