The price of gasoline at the gas pumps has nothing to do with who is at the White House. Speculators in Wall Street and the Supply and Demand is what is driving the prices up. If we continue to drive huge SUVs and trucks.....who is too blame?.....We are.

Gas price's were not this high when George W. Bush was President.
