Virtually every time oil and gasoline prices rose when George W. Bush was in the White House, his policies and/or his connections to folks in the oil industry were blamed by newsrooms from coast to coast.
Yet, even though oil has doubled in price since Inauguration Day, with retail gas prices up $0.75 a gallon, you'd be hard-pressed to find reports blaming these spikes on President Obama or anything he's done since taking office.
Whenever oil prices went up under Bush, lefties were always quick to point out how Bush was taking care of his oil buddies.
So....rather than trying to assign blame to a President, why not admit that there are dozens of other forces at work here....
Gas prices have doubled here since it hit a low of 1.44 earlier this year.

Rex Tillerson > Obama.
