Obama Administration Sets News Gas Price Record, But In A Bad Way
By now every driver knows the drill: The price of gasoline ratchets up, there’s an outcry among motorists who feel gouged at the pump and then things settle down as the higher price becomes the new normal.
Well, AAA has come up with a sobering statistic: the average price of gasoline will surpass $3 per gallon Tuesday for the 1,000th consecutive day. That’s never happened before, the motoring organization says.
In case you’re wondering, the current streak began on Dec. 23, 2010. Today, the national average for a gallon of regular is $3.52, according to AAA’s daily price tracking service. That’s a nickel a gallon less than the average so far this year. And unless there’s another recession, AAA forecasts that a price floor of $3 a gallon is basically here to stay.
“Paying less than $3.00 per gallon for gasoline may be automotive history for most Americans, like using 8-track tapes or going to a drive-in movie,” said Bob Darbelnet, CEO of AAA. “The reality is that expensive gas is here to stay.”
If there’s any good news here at all, it’s that with the prospect of U.S. attack on Syria diminished, gas prices could moderate, but they won’t fall below $3 a gallon, says Patrick DeHaan of the group-sourced gas price reporting site GasBuddy.com.
“The market took a chill pill and is reacting as I would expect to the prospect of a peaceful resolution,” he says. “I could see the national average in the very low $3 (a gallon range) by the time we’re talking about last minute Christmas shopping.” source – CNBC

Barack Hussein Obama is public enemy #1 of the American people. Obama knew you would not keep your health plan, Obama knew your premiums would skyrocket, Obama was well aware of all the falsehoods and pitfalls of his master scheme to defraud America. He does not need to be brought up on charges of treason, he needs to be escorted out of the White House under armed guard and taken to Gitmo for incarceration.

The Boston Marathon bombings from last year were used as a thinly-veiled excuse to run a test trial of imposed martial law for a 24-hour period. The test was very successful. America’s next big war will be right at home, a civil war between the government and governed. Are you ready for what comes next?

Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps – known as “covers” — with a new version that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.
