I keep hearing people freaking out over the price of gas. Doesn't anyone remember June/July 2008? Gas prices went over $4 a gallon then, too.
Here's an interesting graph for anyone who is interested in looking at the history of gas prices (the original image and more info about it can be found here: http://www.randomuseless.info/gasprice/gasprice.html ).
I'm not saying I like paying $4 a gallon, but when you look at what happened with gas prices during Bush's 8 years in office, it makes no sense to try to place all the blame on Obama.

Your question OP, "freaking out" deals with consumer confidence moreso than the prices themselves. OP~ Did you ever think people are "freaking out" because with high unemployment + sinking dollar + rising commodity (ie: gas) + fear of more government bureaucracies + the failed promises made over the years = People who are FED up, thus "freaking out" that enough is enough?
