Fox Polls On Gas Prices, And Gets Results It Doesn’t Like | Fox polled registered voters on whether they believe the claim President Obama purposely wants higher gas prices, and gets an answer it wouldn’t expect — Americans aren’t buying conservative spin. Fifty percent said that price spikes make President Barack Obama “unhappy” “because the American people will suffer from the high cost of filling their tank,” while only 31 percent said the prices make him “happy.” The poll also finds that 58 percent of Americans think the economy has turned around, while 52 percent said the Obama administration’s rejection of a Keystone XL permit is not responsible for higher prices. Polls from Bloomberg and National Journal also show the public does not blame the president for gas prices, despite what Fox News wants them to think.

[important]Obama’s Fix For Gas Prices: “Set Up A Task Force To Look Into Speculation” Posted on March 13, 2012[/important]
“I think the American people understand that we don’t have a silver bullet when it comes to gas prices. We’ve been talking about this for 30 years. The only way to stabilize gas prices is to reduce our dependency on foreign oil and we just put out a report that over the last year or so, we’ve been able to reduce our dependence on foreign oil by a million barrels. That’s’ significant. In the meantime, [because] I know people are hurting right now and it feels like a tax out of their paychecks, what we’re doing is looking at every single area that can affect gas prices, from bottlenecks that are out there, we’ve set up a task force to look into speculation to make sure people are taking advantage of the situation on the global oil markets,” President Obama told WKRC-TV.”
