    I see a boat fueled by that cheap 2$ Obama gas
    Thanks Obama !!
    Teach remember when gas hit an all time high 4.5- under Bush?
    I read on web that the Saudi Oil Minister said in 2000
    that the end of the oil age was visible on the horizon. That the Stone Age ended not because they ran out of stones but because an advanced technology arrived
    The oil producers know that is happening and want to pump and sell now rather than hold on and be stuck with something no longer wanted
    I paid $1.65 at Costco in NJ

    Of course, in his rush to support Obama, john ignores facts:

    Gas is cheap largely because the bottom has fallen out on oil prices. Crude accounts for about half the cost of a gallon of gas.

    So as oil goes, so does gas. Oil is trading now at under $46 a barrel. Last summer, oil was at $100 a barrel.

    Oil is bought and sold on world markets and largely driven by supply and demand.

    First, a surge in production from American shale producers has led to a massive glut of oil.

    Normally, when prices fall, OPEC steps in and cuts production. But not this time. The cartel of some of the world’s largest oil suppliers — led by Saudi Arabia — continues to pump record amounts.

    Some see the move as part of a Saudi strategy to pressure American shale oil producers.

    The fact that Iran may be reopened to Western oil interests, because of the pending sanctions deal, has also helped drive prices lower.

    Not only is there too much supply, but demand for oil has been sluggish.

    Some developed economies in Europe and Asia are barely growing and emerging markets in Latin America are stumbling. Growth in China, the world’s second largest economy, has slowed dramatically. Economies need less oil when they cool off.

    Of course, there is one big victim in falling prices: oil jobs. U.S. companies have disclosed at least 86,405 job cuts directly attributed to falling oil prices since June 2014, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

    Obama had nothing to do with the Saudi decision not to cut production. In fact, he and his energy secretary encouraged it. Obama was and remains against oil production in the US and has limited drilling on public grounds. The increase in US oil production came from private lands.

    Furthermore, as the article indicates, oil is cheap because of bad economies. If one wants to argue that Bush is responsible for the bad economy, it has to be said that Obama is responsible for the economy not rebounding as quickly as it should have.

    So john hero worships Obama. Is anyone surprised that his hero is actually against the things that have made the country great?

    If you are doing Bond girls on boat this week, you have to use Carole Bouquet in For Your Eyes Only, the most babelicious Bond girl of all.
