Thanks to Another Black Conservative for this story.
This is nothing but a reelection ploy. It will take time for the oil companies to get their rigs ready, and that’s after they determine where to put them, to start drilling. We’re looking a months if not a couple of years. By then the election will be over and should Obama get reelected then his administration will once again find a reason to shut down the drilling. Prices will go back up and possible even higher.
Obama said back during his campaigning for his first term that he didn’t have any problem with the prices of gas going up. He just wished they would have gone up a little slower. Yep, that’s cause it was during his campaign season and he didn’t want to have to deal with that problem then. But it didn’t matter. He hasn’t dealt with it very well since his election.
