The continuingly clueless Dakota War College labels "brilliant" the SD-GOP's braying about gasoline prices and President Obama's fault therefor:

You and I and Mitt Romney know that's bogus. It's perhaps also worth noting that gas prices were at that anomalously low $1.83 a gallon (that's the official EIA average for the week of Jan. 19, 2009) because we were in the depths of a recession that hammered energy demand. Welcome to the price of economic success.

But let's hear an opposing opinion at the pump from DamnGasPrices.com:

It's an Election Year. You're President. You want to win in November. And you control gas prices. What do you do?

I offer you the same pop quiz I offered at DWC:

It's an election year. You are President. You want to win in November. And you control gas prices. Do you...

  1. Increase gas prices?
  2. Leave gas prices alone?
  3. Lower gas prices?
  4. Cause pas prices to fluctuate wildly to confuse your opponents?

(Hint: when in doubt, guess C!)
