This is not that complicated.
1. The relatively modest increases in the past were considered fair game for Democrats to use against Republicans, so why are they pulling up the drawbridge now and claiming it is just political to expect the President to be able to influence it?
2. More importantly, Obama kept his promise to raise gas prices. Don’t let people forget that. The Greens want higher fuel prices, and they are getting them.
3. There are at least 10 Ways Obama Could Reduce Gasoline Prices Now. You can’t drill today and have oil tomorrow, but policy changes have a remarkably quick impact on oil prices. OPEC knows what short attention spans people have. If they lower prices temporarily everyone will move to some other topic that the DNC-orchestrated mainstream media tells them to (e.g., “the Republicans want to take away your birth control!!). That keeps us from making wise strategic moves and keeps us dependent on foreign oil and those who set the prices.
