The most substantive discussion of the presidential debate last night involved energy policy. Each candidate offered considerable detail on his own program and a solid critique of the opponent's -- to the point of it being a bit confusing for the folks outside the energy industry. Really, though, it boils down to this: despite whatever initiatives the current administration has undertaken, the cold, hard, undeniable truth is that gasoline prices are twice what they were when Obama took office. With that simple fact – and on that fact alone -- there’s no way Obama can fairly claim his energy policy has worked for the ordinary American consumer.
Or is he just going to blame higher gasoline prices on Hillary, too?
