What would you rather have, a horrible economy and low gas prices or a strong economy and higher gas prices? I prefer the latter. Do I blame the president for high gas prices? Yes, because the economy has recovered.
But lets put things into perspective:
1. Gas prices were higher last Spring and even higher in the Summer of 2008.
2. Gas prices are expected to decline from current levels.
Here is a table of Gasoline futures prices (Prior Settle Column). Prices peak in April at $3.31 (the current contract). As you go out further in 2012, prices drop below $3.
Spread the word, it looks like this is as bad as its going to get heading into the election.
