Why does it seem that the past few election years gas prices have gone down during the election year, but once the election is over the gas prices go right back up?  Now there are reports that Saudi is helping the President by drilling more oil to bring the cost down.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind that gas prices have been dropping.  I just know that after the election, the prices are going to go back up.  Since the current admin is pushing for more greener energy, why would the President and his admin seem to be doing everything they can to put money in a failing market when our entire infrastructure is based on oil or other fossil fuel energy to get what we have today. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind using greener energy one bit, at the same time the powers to be need to be a bit smarter about it too and stop putting money in a failing business.  I understand that things need to change, but taxing the oil industry (which will take money away from their R&D) is not going to help anything.  At the same time, neither is taxing the crap out of every company in America. You can only get so much money from the so called "1%" before the money dries up or those people just move somewhere else...think of Facebook.
