July 19, 2019 / By Basil Question:
For the past three years there wasn't a democrat around who would listen to the arguments of economics as to why gas prices were skyrocketing. Now that dems own DC, they are suddenly trying to sound like they know what's going on when for the past three years they just blamed Bush.
Wouldn't it be hypocritical to blame Bush and NOT blame Obama for higher gas prices? I mean if Bush was at fault, who's responsible now since he's out of office?

I think this little story sums up the answer to your question very well!
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,"Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.
"She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."
"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."
The man smiled and responded, "You must be an Obama Democrat."
"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"
"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you are going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air.. You made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but somehow, now it's my fault."

A, Gas prices always go up in the summer. The oil companies always do this. B, Bush was in the pocket of the oil companies. They were his friends. They don't like Obama, and would naturally be inclined to do something to make him look bad. It's not working: He's still supported by two-thirds of the American people. C, Gas prices are still only HALF what they were under Bush just last summer. D, Obama has never said he would stand with his Muslim brothers. He doesn't have "Muslim brothers." He is believing in the brotherhood of man, regardless of race or religion. As a pretty good fictional President would say, "The question is, why aren't YOU, Bob?" E, We DO produce our own oil. It's time to find an energy source that doesn't pollute the atmosphere, one that gives us the chance to tell the oil sheiks, "We don't need you anymore, but you still need us, now we will do the talking and you will do our bidding." F, No one wants to prop up the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia: We would rather do business with the Republic of Arabia. That's not going to happen for a long time, and the transition could very well be bloody. But if anyone was propping the Saudis up, it was the House of Saud's best friend, the House of Bush. Talk about "wacko policies." Do you understand the difference between truth and lies? How about the difference between truth and delusion?

I blame both. They do nothing to put a stop to these so called speculators. The speculators raise prices on false information to make money as they see fit. You explain to me why gas was 1.29 a gallon in December, to day it is 2.35. There is oil being stored every where as we speak that does not need to be refined. Supply and demand my ***. I live in the Mid West, the cheapest place to buy gas as far as I know. Guess I'm lucky.

The Bush and Chaney family's own over 70% of the oil in the U.S. Their getting rich at our expense. But the blame can go to the Federal stock exchange and the Railroad commission. Fact is we don't need foreign oil, never have, they just need to let us drill the oil we have. Deregulate oil and see how fast prices drop.

Shhhhhhhhsh! Be very quiet. I have it on good authority that Obama has invested heavily in Big Oil and he's manipulating the prices to get even richer. I also happen to know that he's invested in Haliburton too and that's why he won't get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan immediately like he said he would. ( I know he didn't say he would get us out of Afghanistan immediately but those Haliburton guys are there too and he's making a fortune.)

Not here 2.60 where I live and heating oil is still cheap. The oil doesn't go up or down at the command of the US president. However when you disturb the area where it's being produced or the people of that area or the places where it is refined it's likely to go up.
I'm waiting until it's $4.00 to start worrying.
But really i wish it goes up to $5.00 or more so that it finally pushes us away from it which may have as a side effect that we no longer have to deal with the hostile countries that produce it.

Why blame Obama? Bush was the Oil man, not Barry. Barry's a Muslim/socialist/marxist/baby killer remember?

Obama put through future caps on auto industry MPG and has encouraged the building of public transportation projects.
Bush started a war and wanted to destroy a wildlife preserve.

Originally Answered: Will democrats blame Obama for higher gas prices.?
Actually they will probably still blame Bush. It will be his fault somehow in their minds. Their hero could never cause such a thing as high gas prices! Besides, didn't you know? He is going to fill up their gas tanks so problem solved.
