God Bless Trump! Gas Prices Fall in past 2 Weeks

But but but… …Trump will cause a war in Iran!! We are all doomed.
Uh, no. In fact gas prices fell in past 2 weeks. Thanks to Trump, after decades of importing energy we have become an exporter. He has also loosened the socialist community organizer’s stranglehold on drilling (that’s Obama for you public school graduates). If the Left were in charge none of this would be happening.

So is Trump going to get proper credit when gas prices start increasing as well?

What did trump actually do that lowered prices?

Somebody post that graph that shows the economy next to the Presidential term.

Not just Trump I might add by republicans in general, ignore the noise in the room it doesn’t take Einstein to realize that if you let you take the gloves off oil companies and don’t sit and b**** about increased production and fracking it will effect the price of gas. Democrats wants carbon taxes as well as taxing oil more, ending subsidies on oil, stop drilling in certain places. They don’t care about the price of gas if they did they would not support these policies which each on their on raise the price of gas there is a reason gas always costs more in California than anywhere else.

LOLLLLL!! As if the many intertwining facets of the economy can be represented by a single line. OMG. How old are you. No matter, that is off topic. Please stick to the topic.

Hey three weeks ago, gas went up 10 cents, then fell 5 cents the next day after I’d gotten my gas.

Clearly, that was Trumps fault too.

I mean, if you want to be consistent.

This again? When prices go down it’s yay president! When they go up, well, the president doesn’t control the free market.

This entire thread is about a “single line” with many intertwining facets.

The Dow is down about 1.8% at the opening bell of NYSE. Is that Trump’s responsibility as well?

The USA is energy independent, our gas prices are no longer are affected by foreign influences.

IIRC, Gas prices were below $2.50 a gallon during the last year of Obama’s Presidency.

Gas prices were much lower in 2016. I paid 1.50 for a gallon of gas back then.

Will trump be at fault when prices go up this spring? (Like they always do after falling in the autumn)

I’m sure you believe that.

You should point that out to the OP, who naively seems to believe that a short-term blip in gas prices one way or the other has significance.

I don’t. I find it a silly logical conclusion that is ignored by President Trump’s supporters. Energy independence was a stick beaten over former President Obama with until now where energy export > energy import is synonymous with energy independence and is a win for President Trump. Silly.

Fracking. It has made us energy independent. If y’all had your way, our oil would be delivered by Saudi oil tankers.

Insulting the OP does not change this fundamental fact.
