American gas prices rise 15 days in a row
Ouch. That pain you feel is from your wallet as you fill up your gas tank. With soaring oil prices and more unrest in the Middle East, some are wondering if gas lines and alternate fill-up days, reminiscent of the 1970s, may be on the horizon.
The White House insists higher prices at the pump are not Democratic President Barack Obama's fault. That didn't stop candidate Obama from slamming then-President George W. Bush of high gas prices in 2008, prices that were around $1.89 at the time. Current prices are at $3.58 and rising daily.
