…”These have been the most difficult three years from a policy standpoint that I’ve ever seen in my career,” Bruce Vincent, president of Houston oil and natural gas producer Swift Energy, told the Houston Chronicle.
“They’ve done nothing but restrict access and delay permitting,” he added. “The Obama administration, unfortunately, has threatened this industry at every turn.”
A devotee of cap and trade, Obama has said our fuel under his leadership “must necessarily skyrocket.”
During his presidential campaign, Obama admitted he was fine with sky-high gasoline prices, he just “would have preferred a gradual adjustment.”
Energy secretary, Steven Chu, at the time of his appointment, said that “somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” And last year, Chu claimed “the price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up.
On Valentines’s Day, speaking to the nation with American workers behind him, he casually told a half-truth about the situation….When gas prices are on the rise again because as the economy strengthens global demand increases…[not his fault of course – it’s the world’s fault]
Gas prices skyrocketing will get a casual, this is to be expected response, from Obama.
Energy Secretary Chu – he does not want lower fuel prices, he wants us to not use oil and gas. He wants us in electric cars and on public transportation –
It is clear that Obama wants higher fuel prices –
