Except the economy didn't collapse yet. Gas prices were low 01-08, despite a mild recession in 01. Now what Obama is doing by spending out of control and borrowing/printing even more are directly affecting the gas price by devaluing the dollar therefore causing the gas prices to artificially increase.

I don't know what you are talking about... I remember after Hurricane Katrina that gas was well over 2.50 cents a gallon around my house... They didn't drop for months.

I wouldn't call that "cheap".

I still don't see a correlation between gas prices and the economy to be honest.

Don't people buy bottled water at stores for like a buck a liter?

That's basically 4 bucks a gallon... for WATER.

Yeah it's a stupid metric.

$2.50 a gallon is dirt cheap though bro.  Gas hasn't consistently been below that since like 2004.  It's called inflation, things get more expensive as time marches on (e.g. Hamburgers aren't a nickel anymore).

What the fuck difference does that make? Water is the most abundant fucking thing on the planet but you pay 4 bucks a gallon for it... Something you can get out of the ground for damn near NOTHING.

So what the fuck difference does it make how much I drink?

I barely drive unless it's on a track, so I don't fucking give a shit how much it is.

I walk to work dipshit... Move out of the sticks.

Tbombz is a fucking moron. Obama lies repeatedly. An act of terror is not the same as calling it a "terrorist attack". The bitch moderator is a Democratic schill. Obama is a home-school negro who talks whitey to stupid Caucasians who believe the liberal line of BS, but is totally hood when he speaks to predominantly black audiences. Could you imagine if a white candidate pranced around a lecture to the NAACP speaking ebonics. Niggah please, he is the worse President who has ever served. Unfortunately, liberals are so desperate for their chocolate brown face of humanity that they completely ignore his lack of intelligence or insight. The man is an out and out Socialist, even Marxist. Working Americans better pray hard that Mitt is elected. If not, say goodbye to your insurance, your paycheck, and essentially your Constitutional rights. Imagine the Supreme Court with more idiots like Sotomayor and Ginsburg. Please, the country is headed for a downfall if this racist fuck is elected. Tbombz, go back to your hole. Posting bad pics of yourself is one thing, but trying to provide insight and intelligence is far beyond you.

I don't think he is worse than Bush Jr or Herbert Hoover.

I mean, if it's the "economy" then these 2 guys are by far the 2 worst presidents in the past 100 years.

Anyone here heard of the supply and demand curve?

Demand for gas goes up when more goods and services are being supplied. Demand increases pretty much always equal price increases.

Americans drive vehicles that are way too big anyway. How many pickup trucks you see everyday that actually have anything in the back of them? Not many where I live.

Also valid.

Speaking of... Isn't attempting to control the price of gas tantamount to "socialism".

Capitalism is that the market will bear what the market will bear... Apparently it is bearing 3.50 cent gas.

That's what capitalism is all about.

Welcome to supply and demand.  Next step is realizing how stupid your price comparison was, fuckface.

Fuck ya know I haven't posted in awhile but I had respond to this. If everyone is so hurting for money and gas so expensive, why do I see new giant SUV's and jacked up pickups everywhere? I have a van with shitty gas mileage but guess what? I use it for work or I drive a 4-cylinder car around. Not to mention the SUV's and diesel pickups are around 50K brand new. I just gotta laugh, so many better things to do with your money

if "gas prices are low when the economy is bad and on the verge of collapse" then how does high gas prices benefit everyone?

and gas prices are high so the economy is doing "great" yet in reality its not lol

who knows by a stroke of luck all these debt we are creating now could pay off in the future like a giant credit used for "good investments" but the thing is when are we going to see a return  and the debt go down 10 years 20 years?


thats not how logic works. his statement is limited to saying that gas prices were low because the world economy was on the verge of collapse. nothing else.  it doesnt mean that there is any general rule that will always apply, it doesnt mean that the inverse must be true, it doesnt mean that the inverse must be false. your trying to extrapolate more meaning that was found in his statement.

What your not taking into account is the fact that the gas prices were roughly around the same price for 10+ years until he took office, and now skyrocketed when we are at our ABSOLUTE WORST in 50+ years, so to say the economy was on the verge of collapse and caused the prices to be cheap is silly.

That type of thinking doesn't equal out into the real world when things are the worst they have ever been and gas prices are at an all time high.
again, like falcon, your trying to extrapolate general rules and ideological arguments from a simple statement about what was going on at the time. thats not how logic works. what he said is limited to what he said and only applies to what he was talking about.

LOL..  if you think obama is radical in his economic ideology you just havent been paying attention. he has passed fewer regulations than bush did, he has repealed some unnecessary and burdensome regulations, he included savings into his stimulus bill, he allowed the bush tax cuts to be extended on the wealthy, he has been a pragmatist and a moderate in all of his biddings. even his health reform was a product of the conservative heritage foundation and was championed by newt gingrich and mitt romney both.

the entire idea that the american economy is doing poorly is a bunch of bullshit. its all relative. people think they should be living better than they were 5 years ago. and they arent living significantly better, their expectations havent been met, and they are disappointed about it.  go back in time 300 years and see what peoples opinions about politics and the economy were. this whole "are you better off now than you were 4 years ago" thing is only a couple hundred years old. the idea that your standard of living should be increasing every election cycle is just absurd and unsustainable unless a great majority of people are extremely productive and innovative in their endevours.. and thats just not happening. we are doing fine. the debt that world governments have accumulated is a problem, and a serious problem. but outside of that everytihng is just hype.

He meant the Global Economy. Since China and India are making bank off lazy, greedy Americans they can afford to buy more gas - hence higher gas prices.

Even though Obama is a huge turd, the irony is that the main issue this election (gas prices) is probably one of the few things the President can't really do anything about

my neighbor has a ford f350 that is always in the shop. Has all the bells and whistles. Problem is every few months social services turn up asking why he isn't paying child support for his kids from previous relationships.
