Average national gas prices to ‘necessarily skyrocket’ to $4.00 this week

“The average price of gasoline could surpass $4 per gallon nationwide as early as this week. It’s already $3.93 per gallon, a record for this time of year,” The Huffington Post reports Saturday.

Among the reasons for the exploding prices under Obama?

“To comply with the Clean Air Act and limit smog, refiners have to make a special blend of gasoline that doesn’t easily evaporate in the warm summer air. The fuel is 5 to 15 cents a gallon more expensive to make because of raw material costs.”

Obama’s attacks on oil production are also sending gas prices skyward, hurting families.

“The nationwide fuel supply can’t be transformed overnight. Between April 1, when refiners must start making the summer blend, and June 1, when retailers have to be selling it, supplies become uncertain, and prices at the pump rise.”
