Boehner Responds to $4 Per Gallon Gasoline

Congressman John Boehner
June 9, 2008

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) issued the following statement after AAA reported that the price of gasoline reached $4 per gallon for the first time in history:

Today marks another dubious day for this Do-Nothing Democratic Congress. On their watch, gas prices have soared to new heights, and by refusing to schedule a vote on a plan to increase American-made energy to help lower gas prices, congressional Democrats are complicit in this unprecedented surge in fuel costs. In the face of $4 per gallon gasoline, it is inexcusable that Democrats in charge of Congress will not take meaningful action to help reduce the pain at the pump on behalf of all consumers and in the interest of our entire economy.

House Republicans have put forth a comprehensive plan to help lower gas prices by harnessing new technologies and unlocking Americas natural energy resources in an environmentally-responsible way. Every American has a right to ask: What will it take for the Democrat-controlled Congress to finally take action and help ease the pain of the Pelosi Premium on behalf of struggling families and small businesses Speaker Pelosi has the power to schedule a vote on our plan to begin breaking Americas costly dependence on foreign sources of energy. She should not wait another day to do so.

NOTE: In spite of promising the American people a commonsense plan to bring down gas prices in April 2006, gas prices under the Democrat-controlled Congress have risen from $2.33 per gallon on January 4, 2007 the first day of the Democratic Majority to todays record of $4.00 per gallon.
