BP and its employees have given more than $3.5 million to federal candidates over the past 20 years, with the largest chunk of their money going to Obama, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Donations come from a mix of employees and the company’s political action committees — $2.89 million flowed to campaigns from BP-related PACs and about $638,000 came from individuals.

I think prices may rise with his approval rating but his approval rating will rise as gas prices go lower.
He is a smart man and I think this might be a false high. Whether it is or not I imagine Obama will free up some reserves (a plan the GOP has always encouraged) and lower the price of gas in time with the next election.
