    I wasn't thinking of Fox. CNBC has three regulars on it (Kudlow, Santelli, Carney) who openly cheerlead for the Republican party. All they're missing is the pom-poms (I'm going to assume they're already wearing make-up). When they start criticizing him, you know the wheels are coming off.

        Big moves one way or the other, yes. But if it stays in the 3s or 4s? No.

          I think anything in the 4s is a killer. 1.80 or so when he took office, thats going to be an easy commercial for Romney to produce.

            Sure, except there's nothing the President can do about gas prices. And Free Market Mitty certainly can't change that.

              Their are a lot of things the President can't do anything about but somehow he'll still get the blame. Free market Mitty will still point out the rise in prices and say drill drill drill

                And the lemmings will follow. Then while he's President everyone will ask why the prices haven't gone down, and all that drilled oil will be on a tanker headed for China.

                  It wouldn't even get that far. Sure, we can drill all we want, but given we don't have the infrastructure to refine or transport to a refinery, we are pretty much forced to use imported oil. Get some infrastructure together, and we'll see the difference between WTI and Brent get closer. And according to Obummer, he builds that, so let's see some action.

                    Gas Prices = Campaign strategy circa 1980. People don't blame the President for gas price hikes. Maybe they did during the 70's, when shocks to oil prices were brand new and the public had never dealt with them before. It ain't the 70's anymore people. Anybody not smart enough to figure out that drilling in ANWR won't lead to lower gas prices is already in Romney's camp.

                      It hasn't been below $3.00 in almost 2 full years. Oil prices aren't even over $100, much less near their record high of $150 and actually dropped today because China's economy is slow.

                      If Romney wants to run ads showing $1.80 gas, he's going to be receiving ads showing the pile of **** we were in economically at that time in return. That'll go well given his stances.

                        We should have built more refineries years ago. #1 thing wrong with this country is we don't build anything anymore. Just read an article today that a large chunk of the sewer systems need replacing in Minnesota. There's more infrastructure that needs doing but nobodies doing it.

                          There'd be a lot more infrastructure maintenance done if we could figure out a way for politicians to get their names on it!

                            Why are no refineries being built? Environmentalists. Sewer systems? You have to dig up the road, and not only does that create NIMBY issues, but also potential traffic bottlenecks leading to "endless construction" (just like Pennsylvania and their highways). Obviously there are funding problems, and where's that money going? Handouts to those that prefer to sit around instead of getting a job. How about this for an idea: Supervised by a professional contractor and construction firm, let's have those "unemployed" people work towards fixing the infrastructure in order to receive their check.

                              **** that. There are places they could build refineries. We need jobs, we have old refineries now that are way less efficient than what we could build.

                                Why haven't we built a new major oil refinery since 1976? Obviously I agree that there are plenty of places to build a refinery, but of course you have not only environmentalists, but also NIMBY groups protesting the building of them. Also, along with the refinery, you must build infrastructure to transport the product to and from the refinery, whether it be by pipeline, train, truck, whatever. If you can't transport it, the product becomes worthless, which is why we see such a large difference between the WTI and Brent price.
