Obama: High Gas Prices 'Like A Tax'

Speaking at Miami University: “When gas prices go up, it hurts everybody. Everybody who owns a car. Everybody who owns a business. It means you have to stretch a paycheck even further. It means you have to find more room in a budget that was already really tight. Some folks have no choice but to drive a long way to work. High gas prices are like a tax straight out of your paycheck.”
