Gas Prices
Gas prices have fallen sharply from highs seen over the summer, but the memory of $4 gas remains fresh in the minds of Americans. Here's where Obama stood this past summer, when gas hit record highs.

· Keep gas tax in place.

· Keep ethanol tariff to protect domestic industry.

· Tax oil profits and use the money to help fund $1,000 rebate checks for consumers hit by high energy costs..

· Eliminate oil and gas loopholes.

"I realize that gimmicks like the gas tax holiday and offshore drilling might poll well these days. But I'm not running for president to do what polls well..." -- Obama*
