Sherrod Brown on high gas prices in 2006:
And in 2008:
At the time of that 2006 “report”, the average cost of gas in Ohio was about $2.90/gallon. As we all know, gas prices came back down, even staying under $2.00 for a time.
But now, gas is back over $3.00 a gallon. Sherrod Brown and his Democrats have controlled Congress for 4 years, and Barack Obama has been in the White House for 2 years. Following Sherrod’s logic, surely he and President Obama are at fault for the recent return of $3.00 gas, right?
Well, no. Now Sherrod doesn’t blame the party in power. He blames those evil evil oil traders.
Apparently, Sherrod thinks that you can ban new drilling in the Gulf, a major source of the US domestic oil supply, and then act surprised when the market reacts to such a supply disruption.
We aren’t buying that, or your tired class warfare politics, Senator.
