With President Obama's Cash for Clunker's Program, we GREATLY reduced our dependence on foreign oil and Americans bought fuel efficient cars. No longer did we need the $4 a gallon crap and we came to be delighted with the less than $2 a gallon gas.
With every tank of gas we bought, Americans had that much MORE MONEY to put in their pockets and use to buy American goods and services….we thrive!
But not now…..not now…..Trump's new Sec of State will MAKE SURE that we PAY MORE and Big Gas makes more profit off of us….we're doomed again…..Republicans in office and America suffers.

Did you go to school and learn about supply and demand ? I thought liberals wanted to gouge people with carbon taxes high gas prices
