Energy and Money Fuel Obama’s Plague

One of the fatal miscalculations that has plagued the Obama administration is their complete, total and utter misunderstanding on how energy prices affect the economy.

Our friends over at Political Calculations have done a great job trying to explain this to the White House for the past year.

When gas prices go up, says PC, new unemployment claims follow a few weeks later as fuel costs eat into money that would otherwise go to labor costs.
