Republican Candidates Mention Gas Price

The subject near and dear to my heart was mentioned briefly in the Republican candidate debate on Wed. night.

Michelle Bachmann noted that gas was $1.79/gal when Obama took office, and she says it’s possible to get back there. (News Flash Rep. Bachmann: Gas was $0.35 when I bought my first car. Kept hoping we would get back there, but..)

Don’t forget the day that President Obama took office, gasoline was $1.79 a gallon. It’s entirely possible for us to get back to inexpensive energy.

Gov. Huntsman from Utah said we are paying for more than just the gas of gas when we fill up our tanks. The price includes tax shipping and handling, so to speak.

When you add up the cost of troop deployments, when you add up the cost of keeping the sea lanes open for the importation of imported oil, the bulk and distribution and terminaling costs (ph), it’s $13 a gallon, so says the Milken Institute.

All agreed $2 gas would be better for everybody and better for the economy.

Get real people! $2, $3, $4 gas at a price over which we have no control or guarantee! I’d just like to know what it will be so I can budget and plan the rest of my life. Let’s hedge.
