Gas Prices Increase More Under Obama Than Carter

Ouch...the Jimmy Carter comparisons just keep coming for President Obama. Lauren Fox at U.S. News & World Report has more:

Under the Carter administration, gas prices increased by 103.77 percent. Gas prices since Obama took office have risen by 103.79 percent. No other presidents in recent years have struggled as much with soaring oil prices. Under the Reagan administration, gas prices actually dropped 66 percent. When Bill Clinton was president, gas prices grew by roughly 30 percent, and under both Bush presidencies, gas prices rose by 20 percent.
