Gas prices in America

When things don’t go the way people like them to, we always look for someone to blame. When it comes to gas prices, everyone is is quick to blame the current President especially if he isn’t a member of your political party. Fact of the matter is: President Obama has nothing to do with the price of our gas.

Most of the gas we consume here in America is shipped from over seas.  Just like any other commodity, we are slaves to the ones that control the product. Since we aren’t producing enough of our own oil, we are at the mercy of these other countries.
