NEW VIDEO: Busting Gas Price Myths

Posted By Brandon Stewart On May 25, 2011 @ 7:38 am In Energy | Comments Disabled

As Americans across the country gas up their cars for their Memorial Day getaways this weekend, their wallets will take a bigger-than-usual hit. That’s because gas prices are up $1.06 from last year [1] according to a study by AAA. In fact, prices have more than doubled since President Obama took office. And while the media has been slow to demand answers [2] of the President, he has been busy trying to deflect attention away from his incoherent energy policy with a number of gas price-related myths.

Our latest video [3] takes several of these myths head on and puts them to rest. From overstating the impact of green energy to downplaying the devastating impact of his drilling moratorium, the President should spend less time trying to deflect criticism and more time working to ease pain at the pump.

If you’ve heard other myths, let us know in the comments. In the meantime, please help us get the word out about our latest video by sharing it with friends and family.
