How many times has this been said? A thousand? Obama wants high gas prices as part of his social engineering project. High gas prices are the best way to coerce people onto public transit. It's the "socially responsible" thing to do, giving up your car. He's "saving the planet".
2008, September: Obama energy secretary Chu
"Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe."
2012, March: Chu
"I no longer share that view."
Chu is lying now, but telling the truth in 2008. His master is doing nothing to lower gas prices, when the only thing necessary for a price reduction is to mention that he's going to increase drilling. It happens every time a president talks about drilling -- the markets back off and the prices drop. Obama refuses to even mention it, let alone do it (which he should do).
