"There are more oil rigs in operation in the United States than the rest of the world combined."

"When Congressman Langevin took office, gas was around $1.70 per gallon, and now it is near $4 per gallon."

Gas prices have gone up 99 percent since Obama became president, "the highest gas price increase since Carter."

President Obama's refusal to grant permits for offshore drilling is one reason gasoline prices are soaring.
