After 33 Days Of Rising Gas Prices, Maloney Has Yet To Offer A Serious Solution

WASHINGTON – Today is the 33rd straight day of rising gas prices and Sean Patrick Maloney is nowhere to be found. Instead of offering serious solutions to relieve middle-class families of their pain at the pump, Maloney and President Obama have been silent.

 

Under Obama and Maloney’s leadership, gas prices have increased by 94 percent nationwide. Their silence on an issue that affects almost every New York family shows just how out of touch they truly are.

 

“Sean Patrick Maloney is running on empty with middle-class families,” said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “For 33 straight days, gas prices have steadily risen and he has been silent. It’s time for Maloney and President Obama to offer a serious solution to relieve consumers.”

Gas Prices Rose Tuesday For The Thirty-Third Straight Day. “U.S. consumers facing the highest gasoline pump prices ever for February may see further increases as global crude oil futures climb and breakdowns and seasonal maintenance at refineries reduce fuel supplies. Gasoline futures have surged 11 percent this year, making the fuel the top performing commodity in the Standard & Poor’s GSCI index. Prices at the pump are up 14 percent this year and have risen 33 straight days, according to AAA data.” (Barbara Powell, “Gasoline Pump Prices Soaring On Refinery Repairs, Oil Rally,” Bloomberg, 2/19/13)

One Response to After 33 Days Of Rising Gas Prices, Maloney Has Yet To Offer A Serious Solution

  1. I hate to break it to you at this late date, but Presidents and other government officials do not determine the price of gas as much as those countries that produce it. Because China demands and buys more each day at the same time OPEC decides to release less of the cheap grade, the U.S. has no choice but to keep paying more. We have no effective means to control that.

    The solution is to switch fuels, like to biodiesel and electric for instance, or drive less. That’s what European nations are doing.
