Why would a politician pick the higher priced gas station to make a political point? That's the question everyone is asking when Sen. Chuck Schumer slammed President Trump on for rising gas prices that typically happen before the start of the summer.
“According to energy analysts and experts, President Trump’s reckless decision to pull out of the Iran deal has led to higher oil prices,” Schumer said standing next to a very expensive $3.89 per gallon Exxon gas station in D.C.. Just outside town, the price of gas is a dollar less.
Gas has significantly increased in price no matter where you shop for it so what’s with the nitpick?
Liberal voters are unable to comprehend the fact that fuel prices are influenced by supply and demand. When people have money, they consume more. Prices increase as a result. It's called capitalism. Only the truly brain dead believe that there is some conspiracy to inflate fuel prices - if that were the case, then prices would ALWAYS be high...
People are demanding more because their incomes have increased. Those rascally tax cuts are obviously improving our economy. Damn conservatives!
But, in typical liberal hypocrite fashion, morons like Schmucky will complain about high gas prices, then suggest we tax the heck out of gas and increase prices (mostly on the very people they pander to), thereby screwing the middle and lower income people they rely upon for votes.
Thankfully, young voters are learning that liberals and their idiotic policies FAIL at every turn. The best thing about Oblunder being president was that it taught Americans how horrible things get when liberals are in control of our government.
Trump is demonstrating that conservative economics benefit our nation. Libidiots just can't handle the truth.
