Rising Gas Prices Without The Outrage

Pulling into the Laurel Shore Stop last week, I grumbled that the gas prices were rising even higher ($2.359 a gallon). One of my teen-aged sons made an observation. It went something like this:

When gas was high last year all the blame was laid on Bush. Gas prices were low when Bush left office. Gas prices have been going up ever since Barack Obama got into office, yet no one puts any blame on Obama. Is this right or fair?
