If Hillary Clinton Is Elected Gas Prices Go Down

Hillary Clinton told a crowd at the Manchester, New Hampshire YMCA last weekend that if she is elected gas prices will go down. “I predict to you, the oil-producing countries will drop the price of oil,” Clinton said. “They will once again assume, once the cost pressure is off, Americans and our political process will recede.” She said that once elected, her commitment towards weaning America off of foreign oil will pressure the oil producing countries to lower prices. Clinton argued that President Carter had tried to do this in the 70s, but President Reagan dismantled all his work. “Because costs were low, people didn’t care, didn’t complain,” she said. But now that oil is near $100 a barrel these things matter more. Clinton is right that oil prices should lower when she is elected, but that will happen if any of the Democrats are elected. The current Bush Presidency is drenched in oil. It is no mistake that gas was around $1.46 a gallon when Bush took office. Some have claimed that President Bush has already taken the initiative to make alternative energy a national priority, but he has done so with policies like giving giant oil companies huge tax breaks as incentives. There has been no real energy policies from this President.
