Gas prices are going up. The Democrats and the Obama administration keep harping about how oil production has gone up but that is despite Obama’s policies not because of them.
EIA.gov: Oil production on federal lands fell 14 percent from 726 million barrels in 2010 to 626 million barrels in 2011.
Here is what Jim DeMint had to say on CNBC:
“This president, despite what he says, has suppressed our energy production, and I think that’s added to the speculation that we’re not going to have the supply that we need in the future. So the president has had a lot to do with our energy prices. Unfortunately, it’s the only promise he’s kept. He has said he wanted to increase prices. His secretary of energy has said he wanted to increase gasoline prices, and he’s kept that promise.”
