Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for September 16, 2012
Roland: Weird being at 30,000 feet... flying over wildly different gasoline prices! Aide: Okay, I've got the summary here, people... Gov. Romney's positions on gas prices. The governor believes the low gas prices from 2009 to 2010 were a result of market forces. The White House played no role. However, the appalling rise in prices in 2011 through last April was entirely the fault of the President. The subsequent drop in prices in late spring was flukish, Obama deserves no credit...although the shocking spike in the July prices was clearly due to the President's policies. Roland: And if prices drop this fall? Aide: That's called volatility. Again, Obama's fault!
