Final Note

Obama speaks about gas prices

Kai Ryssdal Feb 23, 2012

This final note. I don’t know if maybe President Obama hasn’t read the Gallup research on politics and rising gas prices this year, but there the president was today at the University of Miami — making a speech about what?

Yeah, rising gas prices.

Crude closed at $107 a barrel in New York. Up a buck and a half.
