    About $1.40 or close to half that when Bush took office

    Oh, that's right. There was a meltdown of the world economy.

    Anyone recall what they where shortly before the meltdown?

    Probably not...
    If memory serves, that precipitous plunge in gas prices in Sept. '08 was closely correlated with G.W. signing legislation relaxing restrictions on in shore drilling, thus scaring the poo out of OPEC and causing an almost immediate free-fall of oil to below $40.00/barrel. (not an economic metldown).

    Your memory serves you completely wrong.

    (look at the 10 year chart) Inland drilling in the USA really has very little impact of prices. Fracking yes, drill no because if a company is going to invest(speculate on making a well via drilling), they are going to do it offshore where the rewards are much bigger. Most inland drilling is for natural gas. Bush did have an impact in the early years of his administration when he opened up new areas in the gulf.http://www.gasbuddy.com/gb_retail_pr...t.aspx?time=24

    I don't recall gasoline being as high as $4 ... but I could be wrong.

    I didn't say "inland", but rather "inshore" or shallow water, but it could have been deep water, I don't remember, and Henry V thinks I was completely wrong anyway (I think he may be mistaken, but don't have the time to go research it at the moment).

    As I recall it. G.W. came into office, the economy was good, it was peacetime, and gas prices were in the $1.40 per gallon range. Granted, there was a little hanky panky going on in the white house, with Bill and Monica, but the country overall, was in good shape. G.W. comes in, we go to war, gas and oil prices skyrocket, and the economy starts a steady decline. That's just my recollection though.

    R.R., BHO and GW are the last 3 presidents considered to have inherited a recession since Ford. A recession is 2 consecutive quarters of downward GDP. Within a few weeks of GW taking office the 4th quarter results came out making the economy a official recession.

    Yes GW did go to war with congress approval because they could have defunded the war if they wished. What would your solution been since this was the first time America has really been attacked since Pearl Harbor? Hind sight is always 20/20.
