Higher Gas Prices
It's difficult to believe but it's true. Obama has said repeatedly that he wants higher gasoline and energy prices.
Obama and his Energy Secretary Steven Chu reason that if gas prices are $8 per gallon in the US like they are in Europe that alternative energies will be developed more rapidly and better compete with oil.
Their reasoning is FLAWED. Without alternatives available RIGHT NOW, the higher prices will ruin our economy before the alternatives are developed. It will take decades to develop the alternatives.
So Obama wants gas prices to rise so it pushes us to Electric Cars faster but he knows that his Cap and Trade bill will cause Electricity to Skyrocket and bankrupt coal fired power plants.

Secretary of Energy Steven Chu - Lower Gas Prices NOT the goal
The video below is from 02/28/12. In December 2008 President Obama's Energy Secretary told the Wall Street Journal that we need to figure out a way to get gas prices higher, to the levels that Europe is paying.
Gas Prices Double under Bush = Bad | Gas Prices Double under Obama = Good
In 2006 the Democrats and the media screamed bloody murder over the high price of gas. When Barack Obama was inaugurated, the average gas price was $1.87 a gallon. Now that the price has more than doubled, what are the Democrats and the administration saying now? If you guessed that high gas prices under Obama are somehow a good thing, give yourself a pat on the back. The liberal mindset is always an amazing thing to behold.
