The only way to reduce gas prices is to drill for more oil.

Yes, I know President Obama said that we cannot drill our way out of higher gas prices. If the issue is supply and demand, then drilling produces more supply, then the prices should decline. In the past when there was a glut on the market the price when down to $10 dollars a barrel.
Look I am no oil market expert, and neither is Obama, but here is one expert that you may want to give some of your attention: http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/2995/oil-supply-prices He can show that the oil prices followed the S&P for the last three years and there is no risk build in to the price
“Right now the key thing that is driving higher gas prices is actually the world’s oil markets and uncertainty about what’s going on in Iran and the Middle East, and that’s adding a $20 or $30 premium to oil prices,” President Obama said March 23. It’s complete and utter nonsense. Oil is trading in lockstep with expectations for economic growth, as reflected in stock prices. There’s not a shred of evidence that geopolitical uncertainty has added a penny to the oil price. Obama’s $20 to $30 per barrel risk premium is a number pulled out of a hat, without a shred of empirical support. In effect, the President is blaming Israel for high oil prices.
