Gingrich Spox Responds to Jay Carney on Gas Prices

 

Atlanta, GA – Newt Gingrich Communications Director Joe DeSantis released the following statement responding to Jay Carney’s assertion that saying we can return to $2.50 gas “is lying.”

 

“On the issue of gasoline prices, Newt Gingrich has the White House running scared and running on empty. That’s a truth the White House cannot deny. Polls show the American people reject President Obama’s excuses and fantasy solutions like algae. They want Newt’s $2.50 gas plan to dramatically increase domestic oil production so we can get lower prices at the pump.”

 

Background: As Holman W. Jenkins noted in the Wall Street Journal this weekend, an aggressive program to develop more American energy would rapidly drop the price of oil due to the expectation of increased supply, making $2.50 gas achievable in a very short period of time. LINK:
