We heard for months that President Obama was responsible for rising gas prices. Now that they’re dropping, do those same people give him credit?

After an almost uninterrupted rise since mid-January, average national retail gasoline prices have fallen 17 cents since April 4, according to the American Automobile Association. The $3.76 per gallon national average yesterday was 20 cents lower than the same day a year ago…

Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said in a March 18 “Fox News Sunday” interview there is “no question” Obama was to blame for rising gasoline prices. The Republican called for the firing of the “gas-hike trio,” the secretaries of the Energy and Interior departments and the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.
