Statements about Gas Prices

At the same time gas prices have increased, "the share of the oil market controlled by speculators has more than doubled over the past 10 years."

Gas prices have doubled because "Obama opposed exploring for energy in Alaska. He gave millions of tax dollars to Solyndra, which then went bankrupt. And he blocked the Keystone pipeline. So we will all pay more at the pump."

Says Barack Obama "promised" gasoline at $2.50 a gallon.
