The Opposite Of What Republicans Predicted: Labor Day Weekend Gas Prices Lowest Since 2004


Remember when that Newt Gingrich guy predicted that if Obama was elected he would push gas to “10 a gallon”? Gingrich, Bachmann’s challenger for the 2012 nomination, promised $2.50 gas if he was elected.














In March 2012, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) predicted that if Obama was reelected gas would cost $5.45 per gallon by the start 2015.

Michele Bachmann took credit for low gas prices this past January.

In fact, it’s not any President’s fault whether gas prices go up or down, although, certain actions like starting a war would factor in the price of gasoline.

Gasoline prices will be cheaper this weekend than for any Labor Day weekend since 2004.

Just for giggles, this is Bill O’Smarty Pants explaining to us in 2012 how the high cost of gasoline is all President Obama’s fault.

The Hill reports:

The average price of gasoline was $2.51 per gallon on Monday, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) said, the lowest price for a Monday before Labor Day since gas was $1.87 per gallon in 2004. The gas price on the same day last year was $3.45 per gallon….

Weekend gas prices are topping $3.00 on the West Coast, the EIA said, and are as low as $2.20 in the Gulf Coast region.

The agency said it expects average gas prices to dip to $2.11 per gallon by the end of the year.

AAA predicts that 35.5 million Americans will travel at least 50 miles over the Labor Day weekend and spend $1 billion less on gas than last year.
We are sure Obama will be praised by Conservatives for lower gas prices. It will be all over Fox News.

Bill O’Liar will be enthusiastically patting Obama on the back for something he has little control over, but the Fox host was quick to blame him when prices increased.

We await the ‘Fair and Balanced’ news coverage.  Of course, when prices were low last year, Fox News slammed Obama for it. Somehow, that was bad news. \_(ツ)_/¯
