Plus, chart shows how Obama's "green energy" policy has hurt the poor the most!
MOUNT MORRIS TOWNSHIP, MI -- The Mount Morris Township Beacon & Bridge gas station had traffic backed up nearly a half mile to I-475 today as it rolled back prices to $1.84 per gallon for the first 150 motorists.Americans for Prosperity will be visiting other states before election day. Find out if they will be visiting yours.
The gas station announced early today that it would host a gas rollback event for the Americans for Prosperity-Michigan’s “Obama’s Failing Agenda” bus tour. The group said that the $1.84 per gallon price reflects the cost of gas in 2008, before President Barack Obama took office.
Hundreds of cars lined up to get a piece of the savings, but the group had to turn away as many people as got the discounted gas. Motorists came from as far away as Washtenaw County to get relief from state gas prices that are hovering around $4 per gallon.
Obama's "Green Energy" Policy Costs YOU Green and Hurts Poor the Most
There's a new book out called “Regulating to Disaster: How Green Jobs Policies Are Damaging America’s Economy." The short story is that hyper-regulation by the Obama Administration is making energy much more expensive. One chart says it all:

Remember the great video "If I Wanted America to Fail" in which the narrator says: "I’d make cheap energy expensive, so that expensive energy would seem cheap." That's exactly what Obama is doing.
But the poor shouldn't worry. Obama will just pass out more Food Stamps and free cell phones. It won't matter that they will still be worse off and that their freedom to live as they choose will be taken away. They will thank Obama anyway!
