Obama wasn’t kidding: he wants high gas prices.

A while back, Obama’s Secretary of Energy openly admitted that the Obama Administration wants high gas prices in America to “provide an incentive for alternate energy technology.”

Now, the statistics are in: The average price of a gallon of gas has increased 96% since Obama’s first term started in 2009, according to figures from the Energy Information Agency (EIA).

Update: Gas prices in 2013 could hit record highs– “so far this year, prices are surging sooner and faster than ever before.”
