I see there pusing for 4.00 dollars as the price on the market jump 9 cent today which means a 20 + jump at the pumps this will really help the consumer.

Unlike King Midas who everything he touched turned to gold, everything Obama touches turns into, well it is not hit. He is ruining the economy and our way of like at every turn. I guess that is what he meant by "change"
