All my quotes are put together with gas at $5.25 just incase that way i wont implement surcharges and keep my customer happy

plus when the gas isnt that high..its a nice bonus for the company funds

Default Gas prices are crazy

Price at the pumps has risen 119% (more than double) since Obama has taken office.

After the BP spill, he stopped all drilling and even production from 50,000 working drill sites (he had them capped off).

Since his moratorium, only one new drill site has been approved ( to BP the cause of the spill), and only 6 capped sites have been approved to re-open.

The latest projection of gas prices for July is over $5.00 a gallon! itís gone up $0.14 per gallon this week alone with Friday and Saturday still to go.

We canít produce energy here but Obama gave Brazil $2,000,000,000.00 (2 Billion) for deep well operation.

The known reserves of oil and natural gas here in the US will last 200 years, but we have to import our oil. Whatís wrong with this picture?

Opening up the oil and gas industry in the US will create an estimated 7,000,000 jobs and greatly help the economy. Wasnít there supposed laser like attention to jobs and the economy by this president?

At $5 per gallon it will cost an average of $85 per fill-up. Not to mention the increase in heating and cooling costs, food costs, clothing costs and everything else that has to shipped.

Enough is enough! Global warming is a farce, The last year we actually had global warming was 1995. Itís time for Washington to get real.

That's why they changed the name to "climate change". Hard to argue that the climate isn't "changing". Look - it was cold yesterday and it's warm today - "climate change!" LOL!
