May 20 marks the 1,245th straight day that the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline costs more than $3 a gallon, according to AAA data. That’s nearly three-and-a-half years above $3 a gallon.
USA Today reported last September that, for the first time ever, gas prices had been higher than $3 a gallon for 1,000 consecutive days – beginning Dec. 23, 2010, through Sept. 17, 2013. Unfortunately, that awful record streak of sustained highs has not been broken. Gas prices dipped in the fall, down to $3.179 (Nov. 12), but surged again.
The national average on May 20, 2014, for regular gas was $3.642 a gallon, slightly less than the $3.653 a gallon average one year earlier.
One of Obama’s agendas was to raise the price of energy to make it more expensive for Americans to use. This environmental agenda has been met. Similar price increases in food have forced Americans to cut back and make do with less.
Fewer families will be able to afford to travel and to feed their families so that the Big Green environmental movement will come closer to meeting its anti-human goals.
This is what Obama has done to America’s working families.
