When President Obama was inaugurated on January 20, 2009, the national average for a gallon of gas was $1.84. Today, gas prices have more than doubled with the national average currently at $3.90 per gallon and rising. For three years, the Obama Administration has failed time and time again to offer a comprehensive energy agenda to keep gas prices down, while ensuring our energy future. House Republicans have offered an energy agenda that not only increases domestic production and supply to bring down prices, but would also would spur economic growth and create jobs right here at home. It's time the President and Washington Democrats join our efforts so we can begin to bring relief to American families and small businesses feeling pain at the pump.
