New York - The average price of gasoline in the U.S. hit $3 a gallon Friday, and should soon drop below the benchmark for the first time since December 2010.

The price at the pump fell 33 cents in October, thanks mainly to plunging oil prices, according to AAA.

Many exuberant drivers have taken to social media to post pictures of gas station signs with prices of $2.99 or lower. Drivers in South Carolina and Tennessee are paying the lowest prices, with an average of $2.75 a gallon.

Drivers in New York are paying the most in the continental U.S., at an average of $3.37. That’s still 22 cents cheaper than a year ago.

Gasoline is cheaper than milk again. In September the national average price of milk was $3.73 per gallon.

Just as Obama manipulated the unemployment numbers just before his reelection 2 years ago (they were eventually readjusted)
so are the DemoRats manipulating gas prices just before the midterm elections. This will help the DemoRats hold on to some Congressional seats and possibly a Senate seat or two by fooling Independent voters and some DemoRats into thinking that the economy is improving. It is not!

Need proof of my statement? Look at the futures market and see George Soros (and other left wing communists) manipulate the markets.

Did you know that there is treatment for Obama Derangement Syndrome? The first step is turning off the right-wing talk shows and slowly starting to let your brain begin absorbing actual facts and information.

I remember the darkest day in American history, when President Bush was stepping down and the scoundrel Barack was being inaugurated. The price of gasoline on that day in early 2009: about $1.70 per gallon.

Two more years. If we are zoiche, the RS"O will forgive us and life will return to normal.

I do what you don't - fact check before posting information. As those of us with education know, gas prices fluctuate on the market. During the last 6 months of the Bush administration, gas prices were over $4.00, then dropped to about $2 by the inauguration. They continued to drop during the Obama administration. Thus, if one were to use your "logic", we can thank Obama for the drop in the gas prices and blame Bush for the time it was $4. Or, if one were to use actual facts and information processing, we could ignore just about everything you post as regurgitated Glenn Beck propaganda. And, by the way, life IS normal. You, however, do not seem to be.

Are you seriously suggesting these loser ditto heads turn off Fox and try thinking for themselves?

Don't you know using any part of the body that hasn't been used in decades can cause serious injury if not done under professional medical supervision? Following your advice could cause brain sprain for people suffering from Blame Obama for Everything That Ever Went Wrong Syndrome.

Next you'll want people to rethink their belief that Obama caused WWI and the sinking of the Titanic.

I can't imagine wanting to drive anywhere in Saudi even if the gas were free.
