  1. Remember back in the 2012 presidential campaign, when Newt Gingrich said if he were president, he could push gasoline prices down to $2.50 per gallon? Am I the only person who still gets a laugh out of that claim? And why has Newt not shared his secret with anyone else?

  2. “why has Newt not shared his secret with anyone else?”

    Because George W. Bush revealed the secret and put it into effect in late 2008. The average gasoline price was $4.12/gallon in summer 2008. Then the economy crashed. By winter it made it down to $1.61/gallon.
