Gas was under $1.00 a gallon during the Clinton administration (along with budget surpluses and low unemployment). Under George W. Bush, gas prices soared to over $4.00 a gallon. It wasn’t until our economy was heading over a cliff at the end of 2008 that gas prices went down to about $1.59 a gallon. Just a few months before that in June of 2008, gas was over $4.00 a gallon.
