While I was going through an old journal, I noted that gasoline cost $1.859 back on Feb. 27, 2009.
Compare that price to the one on Feb. 22 of this year: $2.599. That's 74 cents higher in about a year.
That's lower than the national average, according to a report by the Associated Press. That price is $2.648.
And the price is expected to get above $3 a gallon this summer, according to the same report.
That is exactly what Barack Obama needs.
