Big Promises

Pres. Newt Will Bring Down Gas Prices

Newt Gingrich talked a big game while campaigning in Las Vegas Friday, declaring there is "no objective reason why we can't get back to $2 per gallon gasoline." What really made the crowd go wild, however, was when Newt threw out one of his favorite stump lines: a U.S. president should "never have to bow before a Saudi king." How, exactly, Gingrich plans to cut U.S. dependence on foreign oil and lower the price of gasoline is a bit unclear.
