Gas prices are skyrocketing and have sucked billions out of the economy since President Barack Obama was elected.
And, it appears the Obama administration doesn't mind the high gas prices, based upon comments from his Secretary of Energy.
However, with an election coming soon, the White House released the above graph to imply President Obama has helped reduce America's dependence on foreign oil since being elected.
Leaving aside it has been going down even before Obama, we asked our friends at the White House a simple question.
If dependence on foreign oil has reduced, does that mean dependence on domestic production has increased?
The obvious answer is yes.
But, from blocking the Keystone Pipeline and to environmental regulations, what has President Obama done to seriously increase domestic oil production?
Creating alternative energy resources may or may not make a difference in the long-term, but unless the United States has declared they will stop using gasoline or jet fuel, there will continue to be a need for oil.
And, how did President Obama actually reduce dependence on foreign oil? How should he get credit for that while not taking blame for gas prices?
