Michele Bachmann told a crowd in South Carolina Tuesday that if she’s elected, gas prices will fall to $2 a gallon.
The national average is now $3.60 and had been near $4 in the spring — and much higher in some areas, says a story in The Hill about the speech
“Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 per gallon again,” she said in Greenville. “That will happen.”
She’d like to see aggressive U.S. oil drilling Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and wider offshore production. Other GOP candidates also support more U.S. drilling, the story said.
