Gas prices are on the rise. The prediction is $4.00 - $4.50 per gallon pricing by Memorial Day weekend and then plateauing for the entire summer. How much of an effect do you think this will have on the election? People will be reminded how lousy the economy is doing every time they go to the gas station and Republicans will be able to remind voter of the 2008 election year mantra of "Drill baby, drill!" Obama has resisted OK-ing the Keystone XL pipeline. Do you think he will continue to reject approving this pipeline? Elsewhere, coffee prices are going to go up dramatically as the growing season in central and south America has been affected by strange weather. So look for crazy coffee and gas prices this summer and hopefully voters will blame it on Obama!
