Obama pushing up Gasoline Price; Eco-Justice, ya know

Take a good long look at this graph

The numbers don’t lie. Obama can not squirm out of it but the Left Stream Media can and does ignore it. It is the price they want us to pay in the name of Eco-Justice… you, know, one of those Socialist Goals of theirs.

An article from June 18, 2008:

Drill Bits: Is Bush’s Call for More Domestic Drilling the Answer?

President Bush’s speech today calling for domestic oil production—including in off-limits Alaska—has been met with a chorus of doubts that tapping remaining reserves will do anything much anytime soon to ease the energy crunch. That’s pretty much the same reaction the President’s Rose Garden speech on climate change received earlier this year.

The WSJ Econ blog cited a recent Department of Energy report that says drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge might just knock 75 cents off the price of a barrel a few decades hence. We’ve noted before that the amount of oil (and natural gas) that can be easily tapped will provide for only a few years’ domestic consumption.

Of course, we’ve also been taken to task for ignoring the effect that greater domestic production could have at the margin, which could help bring prices down. That seems to be part of the administration’s thinking, as well.

Click here for the rest of the article.

We are now in the first quarter of 2010. The Bush plans to expand domestic drilling dropped the price of gasoline from $4.10 a gallon to a low of $1.60 a gallon in the span of six months.

Now enters the Obama Administration…

An Article from February 11, 2009:

Obama blocks offshore drilling

But times change, and on Tuesday, the Obama administration – with gas prices roughly half what they were and many Democrats’ having been swept into office – blocked offshore drilling plans put in place at the last minute by the Bush administration, including plans to open the national outer continental shelf for drilling.
Environmental groups said that they were encouraged by Mr. Salazar’s announcement but that offshore drilling should be banned outright.

This country runs on fossil fuel…
bought from countries who want us dead

You do the math

    Excellent, hard-hitting post, VF… although, now I’m borderline depressed.

    Here is just another indication of the Obama administration taking it to the people.
    The Federal Government owns at least 70% of the western United States which contains an immense amount of shale oil.
    There is oil seeping out of the ocean bed off California.
    Natural gas wells throughout this country have been capped.
    Anwar Province in Alaska is off limits.
    Coal mines are being regulated to the extent that they may not be able to survive, especially under the draconian cap and trade regulations soon to be administered by congress.
    The taxes that will soon be imposed upon us are going to take the American People to the limit of their ability to pursue the American Dream.

    The White House should be powered entirely by wind power.
    Cut the cord to any source of power coming from fossil fuels.
    Set an example Obummer !

    Seems this Rally in Reids back yard with Sarah Palin speaking should be very interesting indeed.

    I am half expecting the Lefties to plant some sort of violence there and make it look like Tea Party Members. Hope that is not going to be the case.

    Sami, I’m sorry I missed seeing you off to work. 🙂

    For those that doubted I went on vacation, I took a cruse ship to Barcelona, home of the worlds largest dildo. Look it up. It’s true! It’s a sight to see at night all lite up in blue and red.

    I didn’t want to log on too early, because of the time change. It’s 12:49 in the afternoon here. I was able to find an internet bar to get back to you all.

    I talked to one of the younger guys here and picked up some of the lingo. I’m gonna try this one on one of the young ladies. “¿Ha utilizado el falice gigante?” I was told it was a great pickup line.

    I’ll be hiking to Pamplona later today to be in the running of the bulls. I’ll get back to you then.

    I have been thinking about this since last night. Gas is going up. But Soros, who Obama is working for is using federal funds to explore oil off Brazil.

    Yet again, Soros the Progressive sticks it to the people of the world. Putting in an idiot to take down the economies of Earth, while guaranteeing his security with Oil.

  22. m2 says:

    What “compassion” and “green” protection and “open society”… and whatever other marxist propaganda names they use to cover their heinous agendas.

    ohhh it gets better…

    Russia will now start drilling for oil not far from Florida… Jimmy Carter made the accommodation for that when he was president. 😉

    yeah. see, big government no matter what -ism it is, does not work. Is based on stealing and greed.

    little government, individual capitalism (freedom).

    Health Reform: As major businesses lay out the impact of ObamaCare in dollars and jobs, two things are clear: the costs will be enormous, and the president’s vow to focus on “jobs, jobs, jobs” can no longer be believed.

    Early returns on ObamaCare are coming in, and they belie proponents’ claims of job creation and cost reduction. The costs will increase. They are merely being shifted to the states and to America’s businesses, large and small.

    AT&T, the country’s largest telephone company, announced Friday it will take a $1 billion first-quarter charge related to the new health care law. The noncash charge has been triggered by a change in the tax treatment of Medicare subsidies.

    Bloomberg reports that health care charges may shave as much as $14 billion from U.S. corporate profits, according to an estimate by benefits consulting firm Towers Walton. That’s $14 billion that will not be available for expansion, research and development, or the hiring of new employees.

    On Thursday, Deere & Co. announced that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will adversely impact its expenses for fiscal 2010. As a result of the legislation, expenses for the farm equipment manufacturer are expected to be about $150 million higher on an after-tax basis, mainly in the second quarter.

    At issue is the new tax the health care bill imposes on subsidies paid to corporations for 28% of their retiree prescription costs under a 2003 Medicare bill.

    “The 2003 legislation encouraged companies to stay in the game and continue to fund their retirees’ prescriptions,” Deere spokesman Ken Golden said. “Otherwise, the retirees would go onto the Medicare prescription program, which would cost the government more money.”

    Now they’re being punished for doing what the government asked them to do.

    In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., last Dec. 11, Deere and other signatories said the health care reform then under consideration “would negatively impact both retirees and companies.”

    Nobody was listening.
