Will Gas Prices Sway Voters To Either Side?

With gas prices climbing are voters swaying to the other candidate?

That was the question of the day as consumers pumped gas around Eastern Carolina Monday. Senator Barack Obama says he would invest $150 billion over 10 years in clean energy and proposes increasing fuel economy standards. While Senator John McCain proposes a national energy strategy that will rely on the technological prowess of American industry and science.

    McCain 08.....Obama's plans will keep our gas prices up, which will keep the cost of EVERYTHING ELSE up. Our taxes will go up, we will have a never ending struggle just meet basic needs in life. If I wanted to do that, I could move to another country. I love America....Go McCain/Palin!

    It seems @@@ thats all you do. That is because you are a member of DOPE (Democratic Obama Party Euphoria) or DOPES (democratic obama party euphoria speculators. That is your freedom to do that. The rest of us aren't. Why, Obama may have a vision for the next 10 years but it would be at the cost of futher wrecking the economy now. He didn't want drilling and US to be self supportive in a transitional time. Thats a problem. Just like during the Carter years, prices will soar further and availability scarce. Wind and solar won't fit in your gas tank right now.
