#ObamaGap: POTUS Talks Tax Hikes (Again) While Gas Prices Soar

Congressman John Boehner
April 10, 2012

An ABC News / Washington Post survey found 62 percent of Americans disapprove of the president’s performance on gasoline prices, and [f]ifty percent disapprove strongly, an unusual level of strong disapproval on any issue. This updated interactive chart might help explain why

As you can see, the national average for a gallon of gas has more than doubled from $1.85 to nearly $4 on President Obamas watch. And yet today the president is touting a tax hike that wont help create jobs or lower gas prices (but it is dividing Democrats). This disconnect is another example of the Obama Gap on energy.

While Democrats are ignoring jobs and gas prices, Congressman John Boehner will take aim at President Obamas energy policies today and urge the president to throw his support behind GOP-backed legislation to expand domestic oil-and-gas production, among other things, according to The Hill.

Republicans have passed several American Energy Initiative bills to remove barriers to energy production and stop policies that drive up gas prices. See the list of House-passed energy bills here.
