Connecticut Gas Price Increases Slow, Near $4

After some sharp increases in the past months, the price per gallon rises modestly in a week.

The price of gas in Connecticut rose four cents in a week to $3.98, according to ConnecticutGasPrices.com. The last time a gallon cost $4 was in May.   

The slowing price increases appear to be a national trend that could indicate a future drop in cost.

"The national average has finally begun to cool off after rising nearly every day since the start of July," said Patrick DeHaan, an analyst at GasBuddy.com, in a statement.

He added, "As the West Coast and Great Lakes see refining issues in the rear view mirror, as well as the end of the summer driving season approaching, we may see a new downward pattern develop which could see average prices falling- especially after mid-September, a pattern that could dominate the gas pump until the holiday season.”

The national average is $3.70 per gallon.

So, you don't see the hypocrisy in this... http://youtu.be/bpwYh9TD6Nc, when he's dictated no less than 135 executive orders of his own, since taking office?

THOUSANDS of the anti-Bush people were out in DROVES, attacking his illegally declared war, out in front of the White House, back while he was in office. The media railed into him non-stop, along with all those gung-ho liberals who used his act of war against Iran, as a means to attack him as publicly as possible. Well... Where are you now? Where are you people NOW, now that your gift from Heaven has not only continued that war, but began another one in Afghanistan, continued into Pakistan, Libya and Syria?

Bush was called a “war monger” by liberals as he continued to keep us involved militarily in other countries. Obama has continued those same undeclared and unconstitutional “wars.” He has also started many others. We are now bombing and will continue to drop bombs in many countries. Obama is bombing people in Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, numerous African countries, and others. Where are the peace parades and editorials by the liberal left? Where are the complaints by the media?

Where are all those bumper stickers with peace signs and Obama symbols? Where are the “Obama lied, people died” bumper stickers? Why aren’t liberals calling Obama a “war monger?” This is Barack Obama, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, who's bombing more people and more countries than ANY other president in the history of this country! And you don't agree that these are offensive?

Liberals are hypocritical to no end, even when they know that their hypocrisy is completely noticeable . These politicians will certainly talk enough peace during election season, gather their hippie voters and then use their power to bomb countries so they aren’t considered “weak” when the votes are cast. Why were you protesting George Bush, Dick Cheney, and their administrations whenever they decided (without Confressional approval) to go kill people in other countries? Why aren’t you protesting now? You certainly can’t argue that the new “wars” that Obama has participated in are Bush’s fault? Why?
