Today, a conservative advocacy group launched the previous ad to coincide with President Obama’s two-day tour promoting his energy policy. The ad contains a number of data points that lend credence to the right’s view that President Obama’s energy policy is primarily responsible for high gasoline prices.
That said, is President Obama really primarily responsible for these increases?
The left would likely retort that prices are high not because of Obama’s energy policies, but despite them. Many liberals would further contend that financial speculators are primarily to blame for these increases.
While I have a definitive view on this topic, I thought it might be more interesting to have readers debate the issue in the comment section, as well as register their views in the following poll.
I’m looking forward to a very active and lively debate.
