Discussion on rising gasoline prices: Obama’s energy working group prepares to face tough questions

With pressure building on Obama administration from all sides especially from the abortion rulings, steady unemployment rate and rising gasoline prices, the run-up until November for Obama will not be easy. The administration has seen vacillating approval rates with favorability for Romney rising as the GOP candidature is inching towards closure. The rising gasoline prices is something that affects almost all American’s directly or indirectly because unlike the other two pressure points mentioned above, rise in gasoline prices isn’t divisible by opinion and preference or by age. Whether it is direct impacts of expensive fuel for owners of vehicles or increased prices of goods with rising transport fuel heads, the situation seems grimmer for everyone without exception.

The Obama administration which was voted into power in the last presidential elections has vowed to undo all the wrongs that were done by the previous administration and case for regularization of fuel prices and freezing of rising fuel costs could be figured as something that Obama administration would bring about. However, with discussions still underway as the next presidential race is just around the corner, many see this as too little too late.
