Democrats vs Republicans: On Gas Prices

hat tip: Powerline Blog

This chart was put together by Republican whip Roy Blunt illustrating the vast differences between Republicans’ and Democrats’ ideas to lower gas prices.

The Democrats think that the way to lower prices is to raise taxes - How Stupid Is That!
Dear Democrats:

If you raise taxes, the oil companies will simply pass the additional tax cost along to the consumer by raising prices.

If we increase the supply of oil by drilling in the United States and off-shore of the United States, this will lower the price of gasoline.
If we allow new refineries in the United States - this would also lower the price of gasoline.

Republicans are intelligent enough to understand this.
