Hey, what happened to the political frenzy over gas prices?

May 1, 2012

I need you to think back β€” way, way back in the day β€” back to when gasoline prices were the hottest political controversy around, when Obama administration policies were said to be driving the world price of oil, and thus the cost of fuel at the pump.

You remember: John Boehner was traveling to Texas to pose next to drilling equipment? Mitt Romney accused the administration of being β€œon a mission to drive up the price of gasoline and all energy so that they can finally get their solar and their wind to be more price-competitive.” Gas prices were the focus of a political and media frenzy.

How long ago was that? Two weeks, maybe three?

And now, suddenly, silence?
