Limiting expanding refining, limits on expansion of exploration, moratoriums on offshore, pipeline regulatory battles, channeling monies to green company failures one after the other, stupid fuel blend requirements that cause seasonal spikes in prices....yeah...it might not have Obama's personal stamp on it, but it damned sure can lie at the doorstep of liberal policies. Everyone recognizes there needs to be balance, but the pendulum has swung too far to the left.

Nah, this pres's policies would have nothing to do with the price escalation. Denying the pipelines and off-shore drilling, as well as high tax increases and regulations mounting. No way the pres could have an effect on prices.

So...do you know anything about what you're talking about? It would appear not

not sure how a fine for BP will raise gas prices very much.

That said, gas prices are coming up for other reasons.

Since Obama has taken office we've increased our production and decreased our foreign imports of oil. Natural gas production is at all time highs and prices plummeted (although they are now starting to go back up some). I don't credit Obama or any politician for this. This is due to technological advancements that have helped generate an oil boom in areas that were once unfit to produce oil economically.

The pipeline was not wanted by Nebraska's republican governor and many other local elected officials in the areas it crossed. The path has now be re-drawn to get governor support and I fully expect the feds to permit it at this point. The pipeline has nothing to do with oil prices anyway because it is being built so that Canadian producers can more easily export their oil abroad.

The last several years have been good for everyone but coal and that is because natural gas is cheaper, cleaner, and more efficient, causing energy companies to switch their power plants to that instead of continuing to use 60 year old coal plants that operate at less than 40% efficiency.

I think he's just referring to rising gas prices decreasing consumer spending dollars. Could be wrong though.

Liberal "leadership" loves it when they can convince consumers that large corporations pay taxes or fines. They are businesses, They just increase their prices to cover the cost of business. Kind of like whet the government does. Consumers ultimately pay the cost.
