In the past three years, "we've added enough new oil and gas pipeline to circle the Earth and then some."

"Obama opposed exploring for energy in Alaska."

Says Mitt Romney said "we are going to have to live with high gas prices, it's a good thing because it will reduce consumption, we don't want to produce any more gasoline."

Obama's secretary of energy, Dr. Steven Chu, "has said publicly he wants us to pay European levels (for gasoline), and that would be $9 or $10 a gallon."

Florida's economy "became a bad economy ... because of a huge spike in oil prices in the summer of 2008."

"The day President Obama took office, gasoline was $1.79 a gallon."
